The TermCoord Team is glad to host a new interview by our former trainee, Giulia Nardini, with Licia Corbolante.
Licia Corbolante holds a degree in translation from the University of Trieste, Italy, and a diploma of advanced studies in applied linguistics and marketing from the University of Salford, UK; she also did further studies in computational linguistics at Dublin City University, Ireland.
She has been working in the localisation field since the early 90s, mainly at Microsoft, where she was instrumental in defining Italian localisation standards, developing target language processes and driving best practices across languages. Until recently she was Senior Italian Terminologist with Microsoft Language Excellence, an international team of terminologists and language specialists responsible for maintaining a multilingual, concept-oriented terminology database and supporting Microsoft product teams and localisation service providers (for additional information, see the outline of her presentation Working with terminology at Microsoft at tcworld 2008).
She currently works as an independent terminologist and localisation specialist and she is based in Milan, Italy.
