In 1996, Karl decided to go back to his first love, translation, and has been working as a freelance translator since 1999, when, weary of the chilly weather of his native country, he relocated to the Caribbean to set up BeTranslated with Mike.
Karl translates from English, Dutch and Spanish to French and is specialized in marketing, the Internet, software, hardware, and telecommunication products. Besides his translation activity, he mostly deals with customer contacts, project management, billing and the administrative and financial aspects of the network.
Jean-François manages our translation projects from his office in Liège, Belgium, and makes a special point of processing requests in record time. His responsiveness and communication skills are often praised by our Customers.
