How does your professional experience relate to your role as Chief Reviewer?
An important part of the value of my work for my customers is supporting business owners, their leaders and managers in enabling them to ease the daily work for their teams and front line workers by improving underlying processes and the related communication. I see similarities for the review team enabling them to focus on the translation reviews but also being a voice for them and the challenges they encounter back into the organization.
What do you like most about being a translation reviewer for the Toastmasters Pathways learning experience?
I'd like to extend the reach of Toastmasters in German speaking countries by the availability of translated material for our members which they can relate to in their personal and professional life.
"What I like most about being a lead reviewer is the fact that I can help to enhance the quality of the German translations, especially the consistency of the translation within each project and within the series of the whole project. The Toastmasters education program is a high quality program with a huge impact on members’ lives. That should also be reflected in the quality of the translations."
