Lead UX Designer
I was originally hired as Sr. UX Designer in the Los Angeles office, but later transitioned to Eastern Europe to the main development center in Cluj-Napoca, Romania in the heart of Transylvania so I could be onsite for a large redesign of 2-3 major enterprise products in the Language Technologies Division. From there I acted as a UX lead for 2 other UX resources assigned to our division. I worked on SaaS based application designs in an Agile/Scrum environment. I was also part of an international team of 16 UX designers with annual meetings in Amsterdam, NL.
I was responsible for UX deliverables for the entire Language Technologies Division at one point. SDL works with over 72 of the worlds top 100 brands. Apple, Dell, Jaguar, Volkwagen and Oracle to name a few.

Project Highlights include:
SDL BeGlobal - Enterprise Machine Translation Cloud Application
Translate more content into more languages at a fraction of the cost using the industry’s leading machine translation tool built for business. SDL BeGlobal increases translation team productivity for content that requires human translation and reduces human post-editing costs. I worked on 2.0 system enhancements including revising the production CSS to match the theme of other SDL products.
SDL BeGlobal Trainer - Enterprise Machine learning Cloud SaaS
Trainer is uses machine learning to create custom Language Pairs for the purposes of private enterprise level machine translation. The trained language pairs are custom tuned for specific industry verticles such as Automotive or Medical. Trainer is a core sub-application of BeGlobal but is used in other SDL software. With input from stakeholders, management, engineering, user feedback and the CEO Mark L I designed the UI for a new machine language training system that is an integral part of the core business model.
SDL Government - Data Intelligence
Helped with the early start-up stages of this division. Work is classified. The U.S. Government, Department of Defense is a client.
SDL WorldServer - Enterprise Translation Management Cloud SaaS
SDL WorldServer is designed for localization managers and their teams to centrally manage automate and control high volumes of translation projects to deliver quality translation on time and within budget. Enterprise teams can regain control of localization across the organization and effectively work with multiple external translation vendors - all with one central solution.
