    About Mark Elliott

    A fter five years in the broadcast industry spent working with clients in the DACH (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) area. Through my close dealings with German-speaking companies and increasing interest in translation work, I returned to academia to undertake a full-time, one-year MA in Translation at the University of Portsmouth. One year later, I was ready to launch Media-Translation.

    It’s been an exciting time, leaving a full-time job and striking out in a new direction as a sole trader. With a strong network of contacts in the broadcast industry as well as other sectors, in 2009 the opportunity arose to return to academia, but this time as a teacher on the MA in Translation at the University of Bristol.

    Working as a freelancer allowed me to provide the students with important first-hand knowledge of the industry with the work they produced.

    After five years, it was time for another challenge: refocussing on my commercial activities and taking the business in a slightly new direction working in additional industries such as antivirus technology and the electric vehicle (EV) sector.

    Since 2015 the client base has expanded further to include major new visitor experiences, additional EV clients, and even online dating. To deliver multilingual projects, I rely on a network of fantastic, experience translators with whom I work very closely to ensure both the client brief is met and the translators get to enjoy the process of contributing to highly diverse, interesting projects.

    In January 2016 I took over the role of coordinator of the ITI’s Western Regional Group [ITIWRG]. I spent three years in the role, during which time we won the ITI's Best Event by a regional group award, organised several interesting and insightful events, researched and published a joint report on machine translation together with the University of Bristol, and engaged more widely with business and academia – among many other activities.

    I stepped down in January 2019 to enable other candidates to play a vital role in shaping the group's activities for its 80-strong membership.
    Since stepping down, I have continued to digitise and automate Media-Translation's back-office workflows and maintain research activities into machine translation using neural networks. 2019 has been a busy year already with involvement in Ford's Go Further event in Amsterdam, a new website for a German factoring solution provider, many more GDPR-related translations, along with many new product launches, press releases, sustainability reports, and even involvement in producing a brochure and presentations for a regional trade mission to China.
