Behind the scene

TWIS’ Founder and Director, Jonathan Denys, holds a translation degree from ISTI (Institut Supérieur de Traducteurs et Interprètes, Brussels, Belgium), one of the top translation and interpreting schools in Europe. He is also a trained interpreter, a specialist in multimedia translation, and a certified European Excellence Award Assessor.

After university, Jonathan worked as a localisation engineer for Beyondsoft, a major software development, testing, and localisation company in China, whilst managing a European business and resource development project.

In 2005, Jonathan returned to Brussels, the very heart of the European Union, where he worked as a registered freelance translator for most of the largest translation companies in the world, and as a journalist for a number of Belgian press agencies, before founding TWIS in 2008.

Jonathan created TWIS with the strong belief that one of the cornerstones of translation quality lies in internal review and reduced outsourcing.

Jonathan speaks fluent English, French, Spanish, Dutch, and basic Chinese.
