About me
I’m from a demographically small state in the United States called Wyoming, but I’m based in Provo, Utah, USA. Like most Americans, I grew up only speaking English. Now I am fluent in Spanish, English and am conversational in Brazilian Portuguese. I’d like to eventually add Swedish and Mandarin Chinese to my list of languages.

Unlike most people on the Mozilla l10n team, my mozilla experience doesn’t start as a contributor. I spent 3 -4 years as a freelance translator, translating everything from educational documents to corporate websites. I was even a court inpterpreter for a little while. I then became the unofficial L10n Manager at a library software company in the area, as well as a Scrum Master and Technical Writer. My true passion has always been for languages, translation, and L10n, so I sought out opportunities that would get me more involved in the community aspects of L10n and (tah dah!) joined the mozilla L10n team.

My official title is L10n Program Manager but I spend most of my time documenting the L10n process, improving communication between mozilla and the L10n teams (hence the creation of this blog), community building efforts for all of our l10n teams around the world, and providing outsider advice on how to improve the L10n process and tools we use. I hope to also serve as liaison between mozilla and the L10n industry at future L10n events to help highlight to the world the amazing work all of the mozilla L10n communities do.

You can follow me on twitter at @gueroJeff. I’m working on creating an industry-specific blog, so if you follow me on twitter, you’ll be able to follow that blog too once it’s ready.
