How Two Translators Are Taking Brands’ Messages to Latin America


We know very little about the farmer who grows our coffee beans. We’re probably not entirely sure how our clothes are knit together. We may not know the engineer who designed our smartphones. But here at Smartling, we’re on a mission to uncover the lives of at least one contributor to global commerce — translators.

We’re elevating not just the work, but the everyday lives of translators around the globe. We want to know:

  • What are their hobbies?
  • What are their favorite restaurants, their favorite movies?
  • What are their passions?

So, on this first episode of the Move the World With Words podcast, we caught up with two translators who work in Buenos Aires — Gabriela Ortiz and Ariana Loker.

What we talked about:

  • Speaking the buyer’s language
  • Translating the intended message of the seller
  • Dialects
  • Passion in words
  • Brand
