What is a language consultant?
Proofreading and text revision
Business interpreting and international mediation
International events and luxury travel arrangements
A qualified language consultant is a linguist who has graduated from a university language consultancy program.
It is not just a proofreader, a writer or an editor. A language consultant is all that and much more, concentrated in one person. Whether you need to translate or proofread a text, participate actively in international business meetings or trade fairs, organize activities in a foreign country you can refer to a language consultant.

Proofreading means polishing the surface of your text, i.e. spelling, grammar, typos and so on. That's useful if you have a text that you're satisfied with but you feel just needs that final touch.
Text revision adds a little more depth. That includes style, word choice, adapting a text to a target group, linking a text logically, writing headers and so on.
I proofread and revise both Italian and English texts.
Every translation is tailor-made to suit the client by creating a text which gives the author their own voice, whilst using an appropriate style of language for the target audience. I offer translation services between Italian, Dutch and English. I have experience working with a wide range of texts, varying from technical manuals to art exhibitions to travel related websites and much more! I have experience in many industries and business sectors, although most of my work is within the following sectors:
Automotive – Catering –Consumer and Retail – Creative and Design – Education and Training – Leisure –Logistics –Marketing and PR –Media and Entertainment– Sport and Recreation –Travel and Tourism
When is it appropriate to provide an interpreter to help you conduct international business more easily? When you’re dealing with clients that do not speak your language comfortably or you may find that there will be difficulty in getting your point across clearly. In short time segments, the interpreter will convey all the information necessary for a correct understanding of what is being said. A consecutive interpreter is needed in business meetings, negotiations, presentations, pitches or press conferences. I have been helping companies across industry sectors with my interpreting skills for nearly a decade. My experience and know-how ensure prompt and outstanding results.
As a side activity, I cooperate with valuable suppliers in the luxury segment providing arrangements for international events and luxury travel itineraries. Think about top-notch meetings and congresses, and the whole logistic organization around that, or unique travel itineraries exclusively for small groups or couples who wish to visit the less obvious spots at amazing locations. I mostly concentrate on specific areas such as: Netherlands, Tuscany, Napoli, Gulf of Naples Islands (Capri, Ischia and Procida) and Amalfi Coast, which being a local I know well, but am certainly open for new challenges in other areas.
My name is Carla Limatola (1984) I am an Italian independent consultant, translator and interpreter born and raised in the city of Napoli, Italy. At the age of 22, after graduating in Translation studies at the University of Naples L’Orientale, I moved to the Netherlands (Amsterdam) where I have been living and working for over ten years. I speak English, Dutch, Spanish and Italian fluently.
I have worked for major corporate companies in the Netherlands within a variety of industries and have cooperated with the leading Naples based yachting agency as a yachting agent. My main hobby is photography and my greatest passions are superyachts and football. I am proud member of the Network Italian translators in the Netherlands (NVI) and Young Professionals in Yachting (YPY) in the Netherlands associations.
Carla levert goed vertaalwerk af en is heel betrokken. Ze mist geen enkele deadline!

Our guest trip went well thanks to Carla’s wonderful attentive assistance.
Siamo estremamente soddisfatti per la professionalità e disponibilità della Signora Limatola. Ringraziamo lei e tutti Voi per la collaborazione che avete dimostrato.
Carla studied the Dutch language at the University in Italy. Her knowledge of Dutch, English and Italian is fluent. Her personality is open, honest and strong in her communication. She always wants to know why she is doing what she is doing. She was the spider in the web, was best in keeping overview of her tasks and got the more complex projects. She fits in any small or big organization.
Gedurende de twee jarige samenwerking hebben wij Carla leren kennen als een professionele, leergierige en loyale werknemer, zeer sociaal bewogen en met een gezonde ambitie. Dankzij deze eigenschappen heeft Carla een hele waardevolle bijdrage geleverd, in een periode van zwaar economisch weer, met veel flair en enthousiasme.
