aims to enhance cultural exchange and enrichment through translation.
Sciarada was founded by a small group of professional translators and linguists with the aim of creating a shared virtual workspace. We chose the name “Sciarada” (the Italian for “charade”) because of our fascination for language which, by combining a finite number of elements in the creative language game, reveals its infinite forms of expression. After years of autonomous experience in the fields of translation and language teaching, we decided to work together, combining linguistic practice with cultural competencies. Our syntonic approach has enabled us to create a cohesive language studio, where the concept of professionalism does not involve serial production but rather artisanship and creativity, with the benefit of constant technological updates and actualised cultural informations. This means we are oriented to work with texts on cultural matters, such as art, design and architecture catalogues, newspaper articles, literature, as well as all social, political and environmental subjects, translating and adapting from various languages into Italian. Our clients include museums, publishing houses, newspapers and journals, NGO’s, organisations, music, art and literature festivals and other contexts in which linguistic practice meets cultural diversity. In short, our work contributes to cultural understanding, enrichment and exchange.
