Arti Globalme Project Manager
Hi! I’m Arti and I work as a Project Manager at Globalme; I work mostly on the localization of written content for various forms of media. Language is something that ties all of us together, and my job is to make sure nothing is lost in translation! I’ve always been interested in languages and cultures; I was born and raised in India, and there are eight languages spoken in my immediate family. In previous roles I have had the good fortune to work on localization of some award winning movies and TV shows in Montreal and Vancouver.
I don’t have what you call a typical background. As an undergraduate, I studied Chemical Technology in Mumbai. I came to Toronto to pursue a graduate degree. After working in labs Waterloo and Montreal, I wanted to apply my brain elsewhere. Pursuing various projects out of sheer interest got me to work on independent translation projects. From there I entered the world of localization with a large media services company. However, after eight years in Montreal, the cold winters got to be too much and the warmer Pacific winds were calling my name – so I packed up, flew to Vancouver, and here I am!
My training as an engineer allows me to think logically. I am facile with numbers, just as I am with planning and managing. Localization requires intuition into language to make sure that the right meaning is being conveyed. I love what I do, and I am glad to be a part of the young, dynamic and multicultural team at Globalme. I knew about Globalme for about a year before I officially joined the team – I even attended two GlobalMEET events! Not only is everyone welcoming and friendly, but everyone’s multicultural backgrounds allows each person to bring something new and unique to the table. At Globalme I am working towards building better processes and tools to deliver the best localization services for our customers!
Here are two truths and one lie about me – take a guess at what is what, and tweet it at us at @Globalmedotnet!
- I love winter
- I am terrified of spiders
- If I was stranded on a deserted island, I could probably survive on sushi
