A specialist in the web
I learnt HTML and created my first company website in 1996 and started offering website localization and multilingual web marketing services as early as 1998. I have continued to be actively involved in CMS application, digital globalization, editing, strategy, content and marketing ever since.
A specialist in translation
Offering expert translation and revision services remains one of my primary objectives. Originally working only with French and German and focused exclusively on technology, the other languages and subject specializations were added later as my network capabilities developed.
A specialist in localization
Localization is the process of translating and adapting a software application or website into another language in order to make it linguistically and culturally appropriate for a particular locale. I have over 20 years experience of localizing websites, software and applications.
An independent consultancy
I am proud to offer my clients the support of 25 languages and 100 different services. My core focus is on assisting UK and European SMEs and Startups develop their web presence and aim their products, information and services at a global audience – not just a local one.
22 years of experience
Since 1996 my aim has remained the same: to help companies successfully exploit the global commercial benefits of the Internet. My experience, encompassing almost the entire history of the web, has enabled me to constantly evolve and respond to my clients’ needs over this time period.
A focus on excellence
From the beginning, as a specialist language services provider, quality assurance has been the foundation of all my operations. Today, my quality control processes are compliant with the ISO certifications 9001 and 13485 and my quality management procedures regularly updated.
Unifying language and web services
When I originally started working as a translator, the web had only been in public existence for a year. I was one of the first linguists to offer online language services and it quickly became evident that multilingual websites would become essential elements in global trade and business development.
I decided to unify my interest in web and language services and offer a complete globalization solution to UK and European SMEs and Startups.
Today, this unified solution means that a Startup or SME can rely upon me to deliver not only the highest quality translation and revision but also the implementation of an international web strategy encompassing localized websites, social media, PPC, and targeted marketing.
Certified localization expert
I am certified by the Localization Institute in localizing software, websites and digital media for different countries, global digital media marketing (web/social media/search), SEO, content marketing and implementing global digital media marketing campaigns.
Certified global digital marketing expert
I hold a certification as a global digital marketing expert from the University of North Carolina. I am certified in global digital media environments, global digital internationalization, global digital expansion, global digital marketing segmentation and global CRM strategies.
The correct word
I am a member of numerous industry- and language-specific associations and societies such as the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
The correct terminology
I continuously update and revise my internal glossaries, databases and dictionaries to enable me to deliver the correct terminology.
The correct style
Through my use of style guides, I focus on helping my clients present their services and information as clearly and effectively as possible.
Delivering multilingual web content since 1996
I am passionate about the possibilities and opportunities that localized websites and multilingual web content can offer companies. In my experience, almost any SME or Startup can benefit from having an international web presence.
Over the years, I have developed a full range of services and solutions for my clients’ specialized web requirements including: website localization, multilingual content marketing using SEO and PPC, global strategy planning, analytics, global social media, link building, local hosting and international domain names.
