Hi, this is Terry and I am here to help you gain a voice in a language that you don’t speak.
Over the last 22 years, I have been in the very fortunate position to be able to communicate in at least one other language. My own personal skills include a fluency in German and a basic understanding of Swedish (thanks to my wife Karin). 7 years ago my B2B strategic sales path led me into the localisation industry, a quite natural progression given the amount of IT involved in this specialist business process. It is my previous IT sales experience coupled with my personal language skills and 18 years of living in a foreign country which place me in a very unique position to be able to explain, in significant detail, why a colloquial understanding of the country, as well as the language, is absolutely vital in this multi-billion pound industry.
