We Are Translation: Our People

Translation is one of the most diverse agencies in the industry. Our broad backgrounds, interests, and skill sets elevate the work. We’re driven by our passions that shape us as an agency and the work we make—our “majors” are the roles we perform at work every day, but our “minors” inform everything we do.
