Our community is real. It is full of real people working in real time towards one real goal; breaking down language barriers. We routinely interview some of our best translators and longest standing community members who truly understand the nuances of human interpretation. This week Damla, our awesome Community Manager, interviewed Charlotte.
Damla: Hi Charlotte, can you tell use a little about yourself before we get started?
Charlotte: Sure thing! I am a French and currently spending my days delivering children to the world as a professional midwife. I enjoy traveling and last year I decided to take a break from delivering babies and took three months to explore Brazil and soak in another culture. Now I am back in France and sharing my multi-lingual skills and international experience with the VerbalizeIt community.
Damla: Where does your bi-lingual story begin?
Charlotte: It began in high school when my science classes were taught in English. My passion for learning languages started then and hasn’t stopped since.
Damla: How did you become involved in translating?
Charlotte: When traveling in Brazil I met an American who showed me the VerbalizeIt app and told me they were hiring translators.
Damla: What excites you most about VerbalizeIt?
Charlotte: There are so many different ways to contribute. From transcriptions to translations to interpretation in a variety of languages, it’s great to be part of a growing company and community!
Damla: What would you say is your greatest skill set?
Charlotte: I think it’s English to French translation.
Damla: Just one more, if you could have one super power what would it be?
Charlotte: I would like to have the power to heal and cure people. (If I was more selfish, I would love to fly too
We often talk about how we have more than 3,000 translators in the VerbalizeIt community. Each one of those translators is a human being (not a robot) with real stories and an ability to understand human interaction. Join us on Facebook to read more Translator Stories.
