Managing Director

Karen CEOFor more than 16 years, Karen Hodgson has been the CEO of Translationz. With a background in language studies Karen founded a language school in Melbourne, Australia. As a free service, interpreter and translation services were provided to students. Word of mouth fuelled requests for interpreter and translation services and the demand became so frequent that a separate division, Translationz, was created.

Translationz has grown from a small translation business into a global company serving thousands of clients across industries. Major law firms, government agencies, mining, pharmaceutical and medical industry clients, workers compensation agencies, banking and insurance and many other businesses are raving fans and actively engage Translationz for translation and interpreting services.  Karen is Managing Director of the Australian and USA offices, attends conferences world-wide and editor of Translation Journal (www. translationjournal.net).

What about the name?

The use of the Z instead of the S in Translationz was deliberate.  It reflected two things:

  • The ANZAC history where Australia and New Zealand
  • The founder of the company is an American and American's often spell things with a Z instead of a S.  Therefore, it was agreed that Translationz would be a fun company name, reflecting the history of Australia and the company.
