Federlingue is the national association, founded in Milan in 1996, associating language teaching, translation and interpreting companies, and becoming the most important organization for the language service industry in Italy.
WHERE WE ARE
Bergamo, a city of art, is a mere 50km from Milan, it’s a university city, rich with industry and business, but above all, it’s a city rich in history, culture and famous works of art.
Even from the motorway it is easy to understand why people fall in love with Bergamo’s “Città alta” (Upper city), a vision of hills, historic town houses (palazzi) towers, and belfries, surrounded by city walls, that looks over the modern city of Bergamo, “Città Bassa” (Lower City).
These represent Bergamo’s two fascinating aspects, the romantic medieval, “Città Alta” and the modern dynamic “Città Bassa”. Studio First® is found right at the heart of this dynamic “Bergamo Bassa”, near Confindustria, the Chamber of Commerce, the Courts and the Municipality and, not forgetting, of course, the famous Donizetti theatre. It is only 15 minutes from Orio al Serio airport and 5 minutes (on foot) from the train station and the main bus station.
Interestingly the name “Bergamo” comes from two Celtic words Berg (mountain) and Hem (Home).
Studio First® was developed from an idea of two friends, who wanted to create a company that was able to help businesses that exported their products abroad but didn’t have, internally, the appropriate tools to exploit the foreign market. By uniting their abilities and knowledge, undertaking training and specialisation courses, as well as finding skilled professionals, they were able to provide an excellent high quality service to both businesses and private clients.
F I R S T ….Francese (French) Inglese (English) Russo (Russian) Spagnolo (Spanish) Tedesco (German). Established in 1984, Studio First® was one of the “first” companies in Bergamo to offer translation and interpreting services and language courses, and to organize foreign language events.
The company has changed and evolved over the years, however the passion for foreign languages, together with professionalism, punctuality, experience and innovative drive, has led to an ever wider range of services offered. Studio First® has transformed itself from a small firm into a company that is able to work with almost any language, with a team of trusted collaborators and a portfolio of loyal clients. It is currently one of the best known translation studios in the industry. It is not called “First” for nothing.
