Petro Dudi

My professional career revolves around the Translation & Localization Industry for more than 17 years. I started out as a young inexperienced translator and, after years of hard work and persistence, ended up with my last in-house position being that of Translation & Software Localization Director.

Translation and software localization are my core specialties, having translated or project managed numerous projects for Microsoft, IBM/Lotus, Adobe, Symantec, GE Energy, Caterpillar, Toshiba, LaCie, Canon, Sony, Nokia, Bosch, Siemens, just to mention a few.

Currently, I’m providing translation & localization consulting to companies and freelance translators in need of such services.
