I work at a small, client-focused language services firm specialising in corporate communications. My main duties there involve translation, document review and project management.

  • Benefits of the Core: Doug writes:

Being genuinely curious and widely inquisitive is very important for translators. Without the Core I might not be doing what I do today.

  • Hobbies or interests that started at the Core and have continued to become life-long interests:

My Core experience has undeniably followed and supported me ever since I finished college. Not a day goes by that I do not draw on the cultural, historical, scientific, and critical thinking skills that I learned thanks to the Core.
