Nick Rosenthal, MITI, has worked as a technical translator from French and German since 1986. He studied languages at Salford University, and then worked as a management accountant for a large multinational company before founding SalfTrans (www.salftrans.co.uk), a specialist translation and localisation company, in 1988. He is an experienced translator in his own right, and an experienced project manager used to managing teams of high-end translators. Nick has a broad vision of the translation industry, with a particular interest in training and professional development. Nick chaired the Board of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI) from 2011 to 2013, and is one of the team of authors who wrote "101 Things a Translator Needs To Know" (http://101things4translators.
