About me
www.douglawrence.com

Enabling:
- Companies to increase their international revenues
- Sales teams to excel internationally
- Organisations to create a world-class global web presence

My success in helping organisations grow internationally is grounded in over 2 decades of direct international selling experience of language services and related technologies, and my interest in languages, cultures, and travel.

My background includes international selling and management, training, consulting, speaking globally, and post-graduate lecturing. I’ve also worked for the UK Government as an Export Communication Consultant where I have helped over 1,000 exporters improve their international web presence.

I am a translation industry advocate, working to raise its profile and promote its value with translation buyers, providers, educators, and governments.

During 2006 I founded Amicus TransTec an independent translation technology consulting company. In 2007 I then went on to create the translation industry’s leading sales training programme Selling Translations®, which has been completed by thousands of professionals from over 120 countries.

Specialities include:
- International sales training and management consulting
- Selling Translations® training and consulting for translation service providers
- Professional translation process and software consulting
- Localization, multilingual Content Management Systems and global web implementation
- Multilingual Search Engine Optimisation

I am currently working to improve my Russian and Mandarin skills, as well as completing a part-time Open University degree in English.

I’m also keen to encourage children to study languages and have been on boards, which have provided support for language educators.

Other information:
- BSc (Hons) in Computer Science, MBA
- UK British Standards Institute Principal Expert to ISO TC 37
- Qualified ISO 9001 Lead Auditor
- Member of the UK Institute of Sales & Sales Management and the UK Institute for Export
- Associate member of the UK Institute of Translation & Interpreting
