MANAGEMENT TEAMMANAGEMENT TEAM

Growing up on two different sides of the Atlantic—she has lived and studied in both Belgium and the United States—made it almost natural for Valérie to become bilingual at an early age. It was the logical foundation for a life in the world of translation.

With degrees in Biology and in Translation, Valérie’s goal is to do good for those around her. She aims at helping others move forward in their business, adapting to their needs and finding solutions to their problems.

In the operations of Virtual Words, that translates into true collaborations with all those involved to make sure everything from production to administration is carried out exactly as everyone expects. And with the many hats that Valerie wears, she has her own share of challenges. She holds responsibility for the company’s global operations, processes and systems involving resources worldwide.
