Diego Cresceri is founder and CEO of Creative Words, a localization company based in Italy. With a degree in Interpreting at the University of Genova, he started out as a translator in 2005 right before graduating, moving soon to Project Management and finally to Chief Operations Officer for an Italian LSP. At the end of 2016 he decided to turn his life around and create his own company.
Diego is curious about technology applied to languages and translation, and has a passion for training. In particular, he’s a machine translation enthusiast and loves teaching language technology when he has the chance.
He considers training translators and helping language students get into the market a true mission, which naturally led to him taking the role of Italian coordinator for Elia Exchange and being part of the organizing committee of Elia Together.
He strongly believes in networking and meeting industry pairs as a mean to improve himself and Creative Words every day, and that is why he’s now often abroad attending industry events and why he agreed to co-organize one of the best events of the language industry.
