I graduated in Computing from the University of Luton and began my career as a junior localization engineer for SDL Ltd in 1996. In the late 90s I joined Lionbridge UK Ltd (formerly MTL, Berlitz and Bowne Global Solutions) in the localization and e-learning division as a senior localization engineer. In this role, I provided production support for high-profile translation projects and developed core translation technology to support and improve production processes, especially for NETg and Motorola. In June 2006 I joined the client side of the business with NETg International. I provided their localization partners worldwide with detailed technical support for e-learning content development, and consultancy on how to improve localization processes. In June 2007, I joined 3di as our Senior Localization Engineer.
