Graeme Lorimer has been in the technical translation field for many years. Actually he started translating when he was still in college and translators used typewriters rather than computers. His first translation, was done on an Olivetti Lettera 22, and, believe it or not, it was about computers. It was 1981 and Italian terminology for computers was still in the making. In 1985 he bought the first computer, a so called 'cinesino' a PC assembled with parts made in Taiwan running on MS-DOS 2.11, and from then it was love at first sight. Localisation of many popular software packages, translations for the telecommunication industry, hardware and software, machinery, PLC, refrigeration, solar technology and environmental sciences, these are the main fields of translation and localisation.
Student in linguistics at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, Graeme Lorimer was for many years a journalist and publisher for language teaching materials, but even then always translated, and since 1998 he is a full time Italian freelance technical translator.
