  • Richard Stephens

    Richard Stephens is the Director of  Lingua Translations – and is technology obsessed!

    Richard founded Lingua Translations with the intention of utilising his experience in Management, technology and marketing. Richard may not be a linguist himself so he then needed to be complimented by a team of expert linguists who thrive on excellence and deliver a service like no other.

    The combination of the two – is extra-ordinary and outshines any competitor in the industry.  He has worked with highly acclaimed FTSE 500 companies and essentially brings a wealth of common sense with him.

    His goal is to ensure that Lingua Translations continues to thrive and prosper but above all, ensuring that the company’s  goals are achieved and we continually exceed our customer’s expectations by offering support and guidance so we can increase their presence in foreign markets.

    Sh’mae/ Bonjour!

    I have a BA in French from Swansea University and spent a year in Toulouse studying at the Université de Toulouse. It’s no surprise that I also love languages! I also speak Welsh as my second language 🙂

    I am considered the office organiser as I love to keep things just so and I am also considered to be very much a perfectionist – I fit right in with my fellow language geeks.

    Every day is fascinating and I love working as part of our team, we are well known for being friendly and of course, we know what we are talking about.
