How did you end up at TransPerfect?
I’m on the client services team for our OneLink technology, and started right at the beginning of 2015 after graduating with a masters in Spanish from NYU in Madrid, Spain. I heard about TransPerfect from a friend in my program and moved to NYC to join the team.
I have always liked languages and the idiosyncrasies that go along with them but was not certain how I wanted to incorporate them into my job. Also I did not know just how far the localization industry reached. One of my favorite things about working at TransPerfect is the international team. I work with team member from all over the world every day.
What TransPerfect experience left an impression on you?
One client left me a voice mail asking for me to call them back, I dialed the number and was taken aback when they began speaking to me in German, even though I dialed the country code and knew they were located in Germany. I was not mentally prepared for the situation but I said ‘Guten Tag’ and nervously asked for the client. All went well after she responded in English kindly and was excited to hear back from me.
What do you think are the most important skills to excel at your job?
Multitasking and Juggling multiple items at once. And Communication. My day-to-day role is very multifaceted—but that is what keeps it exciting!
