I'm an independent consultant based in Monterey, California. My expertise lies at the intersection of language and technology.

TALK ABOUT IT

As a Translation and Web Consultant, I'm there to help you make smart decisions. I can develop custom workflows to get from A to B, develop processes where none existed before, write documentation to keep everything organized, recommend tools to get the job done, and provide training for how to use them.

The tools I use to do this include: SDL Trados, memoQ, Open Atrium, MediaWiki

DO IT

As a Localization Engineer, I actually do the work. I can localize all sorts of things, including iPhone and iPad apps, eBooks, motion graphics and of course, printed books and brochures. I add subtitles to videos and localize motion graphics. In addition, I create, design and localize dynamic websites.

The tools I use to do this include: Xcode, InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere, Final Cut Pro, Motion, Drupal, WordPress

TEACH IT

As an Assistant Professor at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, I teach both introductory and advanced courses in the Translation and Localization Management department. My courses include Introduction to Localization Project Management, Software Localization, Games Localization, Desktop Publishing for Linguists and Localization Project Portfolio.

The tools I use to do this include: My charming personality, my DJ voice, a projector and occasionally a green laser pointer
