I started out as a translator in 1992 when I was attending the University of Pittsburgh. After graduating with a BA in German and a certificate in German-to-English Translation, I did a similar degree at the Centre de Linguistique Appliquée, a branch of the Université de Franche-Comté, in Besançon, France. I got involved with online language teaching and curriculum development, which led to a Master’s degree in Computers in Education at King’s College. Once back in the States I started working in localization, first on the vendor side, then at Cakewalk music software as their first Documentation and Localization Manager, and then moved to the Bay Area. I have been in the Bay Area for about 7 years now and have held senior localization management positions at Google, VeriSign/Symantec, and Yahoo. I am doing some consulting now, for Salesforce and a few smaller localization vendors. After 10 years on the client side I will be returning to the vendor side in October of 2014.
