"Every language is a world. Without translation, we would inhabit parishes bordering on silence." -- George Steiner

Opportunity: Mobile devices are rapidly introducing the internet to developing countries, but applications and content in their native language are scarce.

Problem: Expanding globally is more complex & expensive than it should be.

Solution: Localize simplifies the deployment & delivery of translated applications with a JavaScript client-side library (one line of code), a robust API, and a dashboard for managing those translations.

My role (during this contract) was leading the Product and Growth teams. Take a look at some work samples.
