I hope you're all safe and healthy!
Over the last month, you guys may have seen and participated in posts created by Katrina, such as this one on foreign language fluency, and this one on AI tasks. Katrina has recently joined the team as a Community Manager assistant, and is helping me with creating social media content and engaging our community, which is something that I had wanted to do more of for years, but never had the time or resources to do. So far, I'm super happy to see the participation in her posts, which sparked super interesting discussions, and I hope that you guys are enjoying as well. It is my hope that these types of conversations will inspire more of you as well to start your own threads and discussions so that we can continue to grow together as a vibrant community!
Here's Katrina's self introduction :)
Hi, my name is Katrina and I’ve been a translator for Gengo since 2016 and an LS since last year. I’ve recently been working with Lara on some of our social media posts and writing on the forum to start conversations among our translators and AI collaborators. I really enjoy being part of such a diverse and talented community, and it’s been great to engage with all of you in the forum and find out what you have to say about languages, translation and AI.
I originally come from England but over the years I’ve lived, worked and studied abroad in Lisbon, São Paulo, Auckland and Istanbul, before eventually returning to my roots in sunny Manchester. I’ve been passionate about languages for as long as I can remember, and I’m always dreaming of learning more.
Let this be the beginning of many, many great conversations!
