Professional practices Becca Resnik endorses's Professional Guidelines.


While serving in the military as a Nuclear Electrical Technician, during which I held a Secret security clearance, I earned a BS in Nuclear Engineering Technology. Although I have a passion for engineering, my greatest passion in life is language. I have been studying German since I was 14 and was awarded a free trip to Germany in high school through the AATG National Exam.

I earned an MA in Translation Studies from the University of Birmingham. For my dissertation, which earned a "Pass with Distinction" (highest category), I translated articles about artificial intelligence from German to English and contrasted the translation techniques.

After leaving the military, I began working as a Process Engineer in the textile production industry. Following this, I became a Manufacturing Engineer in heavy machinery manufacturing, during which I wrote and translated technical documents as well as written and spoken communications from Japanese to English. I even competed in an engineering quality improvement competition in Japanese and was honored to be the first American in the company to take second place!
