Meet the Team
Whenever something needs scripting, or an app needs putting together to process an XML file, I am generally involved.
I have gained an expertise in our industry standard software - SDL Trados, XLIFF, etc. - along with a good understanding of regular desktop publishing and printing practices. I have successfully implemented the ISO 17100 Translation Quality Management standard within our business and as I write this I am in the process of bringing us up to the ISO 27001 Information Security Management standard.
I supervise the day to day operations of our project managers, and coordinate all activities within our business.
In 1989 I formed Tongue Tied ltd which was the first translation company and then in 2002 UK TechTrans was born.
Both companies have grown and shown unparalleled success.
I am happily married with 2 children and enjoy sport, latterly as a footballer and I now play golf on a regular basis. I have also travelled extensively and welcome the diversity other cultures provide.
Over the last 20 years I have invested in and worked on a part-time basis with a number of small private companies and charities, focussing on financial accounting and management. This includes UK TechTrans Ltd, which was started in 2002.
I continue to assist a number of small companies in a range of areas, from translations to picture framing, from a leather merchant to a business networking group.
I moved to London to complete a Master’s Degree in International Hospitality Management and started my career at American Express working in Customer Services and the Executive Office as a Consultant.
In 2016 I was part of a successful start-up BPTHINK Web design, before Joining UK TechTrans Ltd as a Project Manager. I speak five languages and bring a global view with language and inter personal skills to the table. I enjoy travelling in my free time and I’m a cultural food enthusiast.
I spent 4 years living in Jersey in the Channel Islands where I have joined Tongue Tied (Jersey)
My family and I returned to the UK in 2019 where I was able to transfer from Tongue Tied (Jersey) to TecTrans and I haven’t looked back since!
What our customers say…
"We've been using UK TechTrans Ltd. since 2007 and we are delighted with the service we receive and we have never had any reason to review our supplier. UK TechTrans Ltd is a highly professional company that uses mother-tongue translators with a good understanding of our product.
As well as excellent response times and fast deliveries, we have always received excellent communication from the Project Managers, and are always kept fully informed of the project status and delivery schedules."
Charles Henriksen / Aanderaa Data Instruments
The demands of our customer have been very specific, requiring both Russian and English text on the same (often complex) drawings, and our expectations have been exceeded with the quality of the documentation returned. We have found the DTP and formatting to be of an exceptional quality.
Tectrans will always contact us with any questions prior to translation to ensure correct understanding so that documentation is delivered to us right first time. We have developed an effective working relationship with Tectrans, who we now consider our go-to company for Russian translations.
Trevor Dawson / SPP Pumps
Dear Sir, Sulzer Pumps has used UKTechtrans on several occasions over the past 13 months or so, for translating documents of various size and complexity from English to Russian language. We have found them to be very diligent and their quality of work is to a high professional standard. Delivery on time is a major requirement with our supply chain and UKTechtrans have performed excellently on this key performance indicator.
Thanks again for helping us out with these additions, you guys really are head and shoulders above our last translation company, and we were with them for years!
Barry Grubb / International Tobacco Machinery (UK) LTD
I just wanted to thank you all for the speedy turnaround of the last two translation jobs despite the jubilee celebrations and compliment you and your translators on the quality of the work.
You call yourselves UK Techtrans, but it would appear that you offer an all round translation service.
John Scott / Scott Translations
We have been working with UK Tech Trans Ltd. since 2007 and we are very happy with the exceptional service we have been given. UK Tech Trans Ltd work in a professional manner translating out technical manuals and quite often on an extremely tight deadline. The Project Manages are helpful and take pride in returning a Manual that has been formatted and ready to print on an agreed deadline. I therefore recommend UK Tech Trans Ltd as an experienced translation agency offering a reliable and professional service.
