Hi,

you heard it here first.

Let me introduce Jeff Beatty to you. Jeff will shape the way we talk
about doing localization.

Or, if I'd put it my way: He'll remove all the documents we have and
write documentation instead, and boldly go beyond that.

Jeff, wanna follow up with a bit of your background?

Hi everyone!

I'm excited to be a part of localization at Mozilla.

My undergraduate degree is in Spanish Translation and Computational
Linguistics. I have about 4 years of experience in the
translation/localization industry and have been nearly everything from
court interpreter and freelance translator to localization manager. In
my last post I was responsible for creating and implementing an
aggressive localization strategy while also being a technical writer and
scrum master of a team of developers. Also, I'm located in the state of
Utah in the US.

I'm sure you'll be hearing from me more and more as time goes on and I
work on coming up to speed. I look forward to meeting each of you in the
process!

Jeff

Welcome!

As if my opinion matters, you sound more than capable of the job, in
fact too good ("are you really there?")

Glad to have you aboard!

Hi Jeff.

Welcome.

You might ask in Spanish? My English is not very good. With Pascal I
do sometimes in the irc.

Greetings.
