Official MediaLocate Announcement
We’re thrilled to announce Thomas Edwards joined the MediaLocate team as our new Head of Strategic Account Management and Language Services. “Thomas has provided MediaLocate training and tactical coaching for the past year. I have now tasked him with directly managing the Account Management team for our long-standing clients. Given his wealth of knowledge in the field, I know he will continue the excellent work he has performed for MediaLocate and its clients in this expanded role,” said Stephan Lins, CEO of MediaLocate.
Thomas and Localization
Thomas’s journey in language services began as a certified technical French translator. He pioneered localizing software and managing translations in languages like German and Japanese right from the heart of California. During these formative years, the term ‘localization‘ began to resonate within the industry, a testament to Thomas’s early influence.
His career trajectory is nothing short of impressive. From project management to operations and sales, Thomas has made his mark in various capacities, working with dynamic startups and established giants alike, including names like Bowne Global Solutions (now part of Lionbridge), Elanex, Moravia Worldwide, The Language Group, SDL, and Lionbridge.
Thomas is a World Citizen
A true world citizen, Thomas holds Swiss, French, and American passports. Born in San Francisco and raised in Normandy, France, he is fluent in French and English. His academic credentials are equally impressive, with degrees from the Université de Caen and the University of California at Berkeley, where he majored in English and Linguistics, focusing on computer science.
But Thomas is not just all about languages and localization. His early aspirations of becoming a professional photographer and his stint as a radio DJ in France add fascinating layers to his personality. Now residing in Normandy with his family, he indulges in his passion for history, mainly traditional Norman culture, language, history, and archaeology.
