Stefania Orlotti was born and raised in a small village in the south of Italy. She graduated from the University of Naples “L’Orientale”. with a Master’s Degree in Linguistics and Specialised Translation. Naturally, this has proven to be very useful in her chosen career!
In 2012 Stefania embarked on a grand tour of Europe. This put her learning into practice and let her experience a variety of other cultures. Stefania’s language skills were further enhanced during her time away, with constant use of French and English.
Stefania joined Atlas Translations in 2013 on a work placement initially for three months. Because we were so impressed, we extended her stay (twice) having her with us for nine months – and she discovered her love of language was matched by a talent for project management.
During the pandemic, Stefania worked just as hard as ever, and is working on getting her small son to say Thank You more clearly so it doesn’t sound rather rude.
In 2015 Stefania returned to us, this time as a permanent fixture! She took on the business-critical role of project manager, then senior project manager. If that isn’t enough, Stefania also organises work placement staff, mentoring them throughout their internships. Having come to us through an internship, Stefania has personal insights in this role. We aren’t letting her escape again. Ever.
Italian hand gestures
Stefania is the patient one – nothing ever seems to flap her! She also looks after the supplier applications – ensuring these are dealt with quickly and efficiently. We are all learning Italian hand gestures, which we understand is about 50% of the Italian language.
She’s a great cook – you’d almost think we employed people by their culinary skills, but this is purely coincidental.
Of course Stefania has blogged about the Italian language.
Stefania also helps to manage our Quality Assurance procedures and manuals. She wows our external auditor on an annual basis with her calm and methodical approach. We invest in our processes and procedures to ensure that our projects are streamlined and service is smooth. We hold two ISO certifications. The first is 9001: 2015, and we also hold 17100 – one of the first UK companies to achieve this certification.
