Matthew Griffin


English translator. Experienced localization strategist and problem solver.

I provide English marketing and technical translations for international companies seeking to localize their products for the US, UK or North American markets – or provide international English for a global audience.

I help clients translate, localize and manage their digital content, apps, e-commerce and interactive media for global markets, as well as e-Learning programs, content management and software localization. My specialties include social media, ecommerce, software, IT, telecom, automation, transportation, energy, banking, financial services, healthcare, pharma, hospitality, lifestyle and communications.

I invest in and use the latest translation software to help businesses globalize and manage content.

I have a Ph.D. in German from New York University and a B.A. in English from the University of Texas in Austin.

I'm familiar with localization workflows and best practices, particularly in a tech environment, and consider myself an industry expert who can help businesses produce effective, targeted communications and products.

Experience as translator, editor, project manager, team lead, and small business owner.
