My name is Nathalie Moyano González. People sometimes think Moyano is my middle name, it could nearly be Irish, couldn’t it? I carry both my parents’ surnames. I was born and raised in Southern France, my parents are from Andalucía in Spain and I moved to Ireland in 2002. Ireland became my home away from home, a place of incredible beauty and fascinating people.
I like to say I moved for the weather but I actually moved for work, when Symantec, one of the leading Internet security companies worldwide, hired me to join their Online Content Team as French technical translator.
I am a trained translator & interpreter turned process & language quality specialist, with a passion for languages, communication and relationship building. Data and result-driven, I am an enthusiastic organisation builder with a mission to connect and lead individuals and cross-functional teams.
I have seen the software localisation industry evolve over the course of my career, embrace new technology and change models, and I have been part of it. I started as a translator and saw my role naturally evolve with the industry. For years I managed the product translation processes and localised software quality for Symantec. My biggest achievement was to bridge the gap between teams, functions and stakeholders, advocating transparency and engagement to build and maintain successful, mutually beneficial localisation experiences.
After a long career in IT, I decided to leave my corporate job and start my own business, with the intention of putting my languages and industry knowledge to the service of communities, entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes, to help them create, optimise and deliver multilingual content and experiences.
Whether I deliver linguistic services or consult, my services are always centred around three critical pillars, people, processes and data, with the aim to reach high levels of engagement, efficiency and quality for all parties involved.
I am lucky to be joined on this journey by amazing professionals who bring their own experience and skills to MOYTILINGUAL. You can meet them here.
I am a strong advocate of diversity & inclusion, education and social change, and I believe in giving back to the community. I was raised to be kind, respectful, fair and supportive and I do my best to contribute to as many causes as I can.
