The origins of 31 Orange can be found in Argentina where I used to live with my wife Mariana. I started translating IBM software manuals from English to Dutch. I soon received more requests for other languages and gathered a small team of freelance translators around me. Not long afterwards, I decided to focus on sales to give my translation agency room to grow. In no time, the team had increased to 25 – 30 freelancers.
Many customers choose us because of our one-stop-shopping service for 12 languages: one supplier, one contact, one invoice. We don’t just reply and deliver quickly, but also realise that sometimes it’s really necessary to deliver at night or in the weekend.
Just take a look at our portfolio that speaks louder than words and shows companies that believe in our quality and added value.
Growing up near a port city, it was apparent to me from a young age that there was more to the world than just the Netherlands – and that is why I like to explore the continents. My many years in Argentina bear testimony to this. They taught me a lot about the world and myself as well. It inspired my wanderlust and desire for knowledge of other cultures. My Rotterdam roots, Latin American and Spanish experience shaped not only my personal vision of the world, but also laid the foundations for the social responsibility I apply to my work. What I enjoy doing most is combining my business insight with international experience, commercial drive and service-oriented mindset to deliver top quality, nothing less. Open, honest and no-nonsense.
I was born in Argentina. As the daughter of an Argentine-Italian mother and Peruvian father, I was brought into contact with different cultures from a very young age. When Olav asked me several years ago to help him out with some operational tasks, I couldn’t imagine that I would ultimately head up our Operations unit. It was the ideal combination for our growing family. After all, family comes first. I like to contribute to the communicational challenges of companies and entrepreneurs who believe in our added value. Building a bridge between customers looking to communicate in a foreign language and passionate translators who make that possible; that’s what gives me pleasure in my work. My motto is: be the change that you wish to see in the world.
