• The history of Galactus translations and transcriptions agency in Milan

Galactus: the origin of the name

Galactus is a character from the world of Marvel Comics, created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. He appeared for the first time in issue 48 of “The Fantastic Four”, in March 1966.

He is a complex figure, restless and imposing. In order to nourish himself, he has to continually devour worlds rich in life. For this reason he is also called the Devourer of Worlds or the Destroyer.

When Galactus felt his first pangs of hunger, he chose to devour uninhabited planets. As time went by, his strength grew and his energy needs with it. He therefore began to destroy his first civilized planets, with the help of another famous character: Silver Surfer.

When Galactus turned his attentions towards Earth, Silver Surfer rebelled against his master’s intentions and saved our planet.

As a punishment for defending us, Galactus compelled Silver Surfer to remain in exile. Galactus is a force of nature, a being on whom depends the equilibrium of the universe. He possesses boundless cosmic powers, such as the ability to create matter from the energy in his possession, or to move planets and galaxies.

Galactus Translations has taken its inspiration from this powerful and fascinating character, paying homage to him. Like him, we are fatally attracted by new worlds, new languages and new horizons, which are like vital lymph for us.

Unlike the Devourer of Worlds, we do not aim to destroy them, but to support them, encouraging integration between different cultures.

We like to think we are navigating in an infinite space, without limits or barriers, avid seekers of new knowledge from which to obtain nourishment.

Our Story

The Galactus Translations studio was created in 1999. We began with two English and French translators and a single customer: a leading company in the insurance sector.

After nearly a year of rewarding work in close contact with the International Claims Office, the need arose to find a German-Italian translator for an urgent and complex assignment.

The customer’s usual referee was no longer meeting their expectations. In a few hours, we added a professional German language translator to our team.

From that day in the far-off year of 2000, we began to weave a canvas that, little by little, year by year, expanded to embrace various linguistic skills and numerous other sectors.

Today, Galactus can boast a network of 100 trusted professionals. It organizes company courses in Italian for Foreigners, it provides a service for the transcription of manuscripts and ancient texts and deals with archival and historical research.

Just believe in what you are doing and it may be the beginning of a beautiful story.
