SMARTLING INC.

In early 2019 I was approached by Smartling Inc., a language tech company, to produce a photo series and marketing book for their "Move the World with Words" campaign. The idea behind the project was simple: if we could put a spotlight on the human element, which is so often overlooked in the digital age, perhaps we could see how ideas come to life in other languages. I spent two months interviewing and photographing a dozen Smartling translators in nine countries, and I also spoke at the company's annual Global Ready conference.
