About this Event

The localization industry, like many others, have been impacted by the economic downturn. Many of our colleagues in the industry have faced either loss of employment/business or uncertainty. In this event, we want to focus on lifting up.
• To lift oneself up, we need motivation.
• To recognize how others have lifted us up, we experience gratitude.
• To lift others up, we demonstrate generosity.
Our guest speaker is Lorena Ortiz Schneider, owner of Ortiz Schneider Interpreting & Translation, Inc. She earned her MA from the Monterey Institute of International Studies and have been a passionate professional interpreter and translator since. Lorena’s journey is nothing but inspiring and you can hear about it in her recent interview done by our very own Winnie Heh.
Instructions regarding how to watch the event live will be added to this event description soon so please keep an eye out for updates. In the meantime, feel free to ask questions for Lorena or share your stories in our Facebook event page. We’d love to hear from you!
