We like to think we deal with people rather than organisations. That way we stay focused because we never want to let anyone down. We know people need translations done properly and quickly, whether it is for a personal issue or a global business deal. We treat people as we would like to be treated; respectfully, efficiently and fairly.
We are careful to ensure our translators and other partners all share our philosophy. We are also committed to developing individuals both personally and professionally.
Who is behind TranslatorsVillage?
Our team is, and will remain, small. Our business strategy is to provide a vehicle for putting anyone needing text translated in contact with the best available translator for the job. We identify and collaborate with experienced professionals who share our values and philosophy.
We are not interested in building an empire or massive internal administrative structure. We exploit new technologies to enable us to manage our resources and remain flexible and able to react quickly. We are adamant we will not let new technologies exploit us or distance us from our clients or partners.
This is us:
Blanca Gonzalez, Founder and Director
I have 20 years of experience managing translation companies of all sizes in different countries. I'm always looking for innovative ways to help people benefit and derive pleasure from the richness of multicultural experiences. I have been an Operations Manager in the language industries in France, UK and Spain, overseeing the Production, Finance, HR, IT & Logistics Departments. I've held different positions for some of the industry leaders and I'm now focused on implementing strategies that drive the growth of SMEs within the fast growing globalized world of commerce.
Katie Lovell, Project Coordinator
I am a recent graduate from the University of Nottingham and I am currently studying a Masters course in Applied Translation Studies at the University of Leeds. I speak Spanish and Portuguese and I studied and worked in Coimbra, Portugal and Madrid respectively. My role at TranslatorsVillage allows me to employ my language, communication and organisational skills to oversee the smooth running of projects, manage social media channels and perform administrative tasks - among many other things.
