Francesca Gola

Francesca and Nathalie met in Dublin in 2002, when they both worked as technical translators for Symantec. Fran later moved to Seattle where she further developed her career in Localisation, working for companies like Pokemon and Valve to only name a few.

Fran’s commitment, thoroughness, attention to detail and profound knowledge of language and culture make her an amazing professional and human being.

Fran sparks magic around her. Going for a walk in search of the perfect espresso can turn into a surreal adventure. There’s a particularly beautiful encounter we had in Seattle once, but that’s a story for another day.

Francesca is a qualified project manager, translator and editor working in Italian, English, French. She holds an MA in Translation and MS in Computational Linguistics.
