About The

Founder

If the folks at Travel & Leisure Magazine asked me to share my story, what an honor that would be! After recovering from jumping up and down for joy, I’d start with …

There once was a girl who grew up in a tiny town just outside of Boston. Her parents had “funny” accents and were called eccentric by others. They spoke multiple languages and invited guests from all over the world to stay for a day, a week, a month and even a year!

This girl dreamed of being a singer, traveling the world and singing her heart out. Well, if you are the child of immigrants, then you know that was truly a dream and would be no reality for this little girl…

Thankfully this little girl grew up valuing foreign languages, cultural differences and diversity! Which led her to fly down to Houston, sight unseen, to attend Rice University where she focused her studies on … you guessed it – languages! And, she threw in a course or two about history, political science and anthropology!

Her love of languages and people from other cultures has continued to grow over the years so it made perfect sense that a language services agency would be in her future!

Which brings us to the here and now.

Today, MAPA Translations approaches each project as if it were curating travel arrangements for an

exclusive & luxurious

sightseeing tour for celebrities to Bali!

We don’t necessarily work with celebrities but we’ll definitely treat you like one. So, if you’re looking to communicate information about your services, products or programs to a broader audience we can help you do that in a culturally aware and linguistically appropriate way!

Grab your passport and pack your bags!

MAPA Translations is your gateway for a cultural and linguistic journey.

Communicating with your clients and customers is key to your success. In a highly globalized and interconnected world, clear communication that is culturally curated and linguistically localized is what will set you apart!

Sounds simple, right? Yet communication, in any language, is complex, dynamic and full of multiple layers of meaning. So, imagine how compounded things become when you need to communicate the same message, with the same meaning, in many languages!

As global language experts, we work with our clients to create

streamlined communication

solutions

while taking into account cultural and linguistic differences for each unique target audience you want to reach.

Director of Operations

Driven by his passion to see all people have equal access to information no matter what language they speak and over five years of working in the language services industry, Mateus takes pride in providing the best possible customer service to all of MAPA’s clients.

Mateus has held various roles at MAPA including processing contractor invoices, maintaining accounts payable and accounts receivable records, project management and more recently overseeing the day-to-day operations of the agency.

He is highly personable, enjoys interacting with our linguists and clients, and has a knack for juggling multiple projects and tasks even on the busiest of days! He has a great voice and our clients love to connect with him to discuss an upcoming project or just to shoot the breeze.

When he isn’t working to improve access to language services, you’ll find him doing one of his many favorite things – grabbing an iced coffee, hanging with friends, or traveling to a new adventure.
