Bekir Diri

Bekir studied at Trakya University, Department of Translation and Interpretation (English), and took an active role in Trakya University Translation Club (TÜÇEV) and The Union of Translation Students (TÜÇEB) to get the chance to know the world of translation better.

Since his years of study, he took part in the translation projects of translation and localization companies in Turkey and abroad. He also takes refuge in his secret corner to translate books as he finds time in the daily hassle. His interest in technologies led him to translation and localization technologies.

Boasting seven years of experience on translation and localization, Bekir worked in several companies (Link Translations, Dragoman Language Services, Nubuto, Localex) as a technical translator, book translator, project manager, technology expert, web localization manager and translation technologies manager.

Currently working as the Sales-Marketing Manager of Localex Language Services, Bekir is improving his industry experience with his MA in Translation Studies in Istanbul 29 Mayis University with his thesis on “Issues of Turkish Language in Game, Mobile Application and Web Localization”. He also teaches translation technologies in Istanbul 29 Mayis University.
