Meet our team
Tim Giardina – President
Many years ago, I took my first job working in the translation and localization industry and have never looked back. Today, my team of translators and skilled engineers have allowed Lingosphere Localization Group to revolutionize the translation industry. Clients no longer have to go to multiple translation agencies or studios in a variety of cities or countries to complete a project under budget. Our group of over 3000 professional linguists and voice talents, in over 130 languages, is a task I take great pride in developing. We strive to locate the world’s best linguistic providers and voice talent and make them available to all clients seeking professional services. As quality assurance is most important, I actively participate in all Lingosphere projects to ensure a proper workflow, and to guarantee that all translations are of the highest quality.
