I'm an American expat (born and raised in Lynn, Massachusetts) residing the last two or so decades in Athens, Greece. My professional career revolves around the Translation & Localization Industry for more than 17 years. I started out as a young inexperienced translator and, after years of hard work and persistence, ended up with my last in-house position being that of Translation & Software Localization Director.
Translation and software localization are my core specialties, having translated or project managed numerous projects for Microsoft, IBM/Lotus, Adobe, Symantec, GE Energy, Caterpillar, Toshiba, LaCie, Canon, Sony, Nokia, Bosch, Siemens, just to mention a few.
Lately, I'm freelancing and providing translation & localization consulting to companies within the industry (i.e., translation agencies), and to corporations in need of internal or external translation/localization services (i.e., international firms with overseas branch offices, software companies and so on).
I'm also actively involved in helping out translators/localizers, especially with their translation software tools and daily business operation. A considerable effort in this area is pro bono. Seeing a lack of an online solution to such issues, I've set up a website to deal with them: http://www.translators-tech-help.com.
