2020-2021 Board Candidate: Paulo Pereira Guimarães
|Paulo Pereira Guimarães
Inside Language Solutions
In 2006, I started as an administrative assistant, picking up documents - still in paper - in clients' offices and sending them to translators via fax machine. Later I began multitasking in translator and project manager roles, but always focusing most of my efforts in project management. I ended up working as project manager for more than 6 years, dealing with more than 15 million translated words per year. Finally, yet importantly, in the past 4 years, I have been working as Managing Director, leading the company through the evolution of Machine Translation, developing our team and foreseeing our strategies for the future.
Being the representative of a small LSP, I believe that, as a member of GALA's Board, I can bring the experience in this front and therefore help GALA's events to address situations that reflect on all companies but especially on the small ones. The translation industry is quickly evolving and small companies have to keep up with the innovation pace even with a tight budget and with limited access to the best human resources. I could bring a lot to the table in this regard and that is the reason I think I could be a good fit and want to be a candidate.
