Hi Gengo Translators!
I’m Megan, your new Community Manager. I’m here to advocate for you within Gengo; execute initiatives that help you all be happy and productive; and create an active, engaged and open community where you all feel at home.
A bit about me: I’m originally from South Africa, so I grew up speaking English, Afrikaans, and a bit of Xhosa. As a teenager I moved to the UK, where I studied Linguistics and Publishing at university. I’ve been living in Japan for almost four years, and have been working as an editor and journalist for English-language publications here and overseas.
I’m fortunate to be jumping in with a great existing Gengo team and vibrant community of Gengo Translators already in place. I'm continuing to work with Lara—our lovely forum moderator—who is keeping me updated on what is going on in the forums. I’m also going to be working closely with our Customer Support team who hear from you every day via your email inquiries and comments. And of course, I’ll be looking to work with each of you—so please keep your ideas and suggestions coming!
As a company, I’m excited to see that we’re already working on some cool projects and improvements to make your lives as Gengo Translators even better. For example, right now we are looking at redesigning various translator tools so we can optimize the translation process and help you translate more effectively. We hope to complete these designs in the months ahead.
In the coming weeks, I’m looking forward to sitting down with various members of the translator community to hear about the things that are fantastic about being a Gengo Translator. But I also want to know the things that are not so good so we can improve.
Please feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions or concerns, or even just to say hi: firstname.lastname@example.org. For urgent and technical issues, please continue to contact email@example.com.
