Richard StephensRichard 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.
Adrian GrahamSenior Project Manager
I’m the Senior Project Manager and I love my job at Lingua Translations. I have a MA in Translation and I speak German, French and I am learning Spanish – plus I have studied some Mandarin.
I am always told how calm I am, which is a great trait for a PM
Julia GrahamProject Manager
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.
Carys JonesProject Manager
Your friendly PM, always ready to help!
I have a BA in French and Spanish and I am first language Welsh. I’ve spent 4 years studying at Cardiff University, including a year abroad in Toulouse and Barcelona. A bit of Italian and Catalan has been thrown into the mix over the years and I’m sure plenty more will be in the future! My passion for travel, language and culture continues to grow with each day that goes by and being a part of Lingua Translations has allowed me to enter the desirable world of translation that I have always wanted.
Marine CouchotProject Manager/Intern
I am French and doing a MA in Audiovisual Translation both in English and German.
I studied for 4 months in Finland and spent 10 months in Australia. As part of my degree scheme, I am on an internship at Lingua Translations for 6 months. This experience will enable me to understand more about myself and help me to determine the perfect career path for me. I love travelling and Swansea seems to have so much to offer. I’ve always been interested in learning new languages and cultures and this is definitely the place to be!
