Sue was recruited to MTT in 1991. Coming from a background of Automation & Engineering, Sue was the ideal person to take up the challenging role of in-house senior technical translator in French and German. She has a real passion for languages and as well as being a translator she's an interpreter, technical proofreader and has also taught German & French to Business clients.
Sue's interest in automotive translation is fuelled by her passion for motorbikes but since having two children Sue has given up her 98 horsepower for pedal power. She also enjoys F1, gaming, cycling and walking her dog Alfie.
Sue was made director in 1993 and bought the company in 2004 when MTT (UK) Ltd was born. MTT is now part of the Marketing + Technologies Group, enabling us to offer even more services to our clients.
Sue's vision was to create the best type of translation agency, one that not only offered technically accurate translations but also offered great customer service and peace of mind to her customers. This has been achieved as MTT can boast that for the tenth year running they have a customer satisfaction rating of 99%. This is due to Sue's dedication and her fabulous team of translators and admin staff backing her up.
Sue's passion for languages doesn't just stop at the office door, she has lectured to students from local schools to Oxford university graduates on the importance of languages in business and how it can improve their future career prospects in the international business market.

Karen's passion is archery and most weekends, come rain or shine (or sometimes snow!) she can be found competing in tournaments all over the UK. When time allows, Karen also loves reading, cookery, crafts, gardening, geocaching and travel.
Rossella was recruited to MTT as a bilingual project manager in 2017, with previous experience ranging from being a PA for the Chief Officers to European Sales and Marketing Manager for a water-soluble plastics company. Rossella brings a wealth of experience and skills to MTT.
She has a degree in both French and Italian and a passion for languages. She loves a conversation and connecting with people and thrives on building a good rapport with customers and maintaining excellent customer satisfaction.
A love of travel has taken Rossella to many exotic locations around the world, such as Thailand, USA Mexico, the Middle East and many other places. Foreign travel has given Rossella a good understanding of other cultures, which is always an invaluable skill to have when working with translations.
In her spare time, Rossella loves cooking and entertaining her family and friends, travelling and going for long country walks.
Amy was recruited to MTT in 2021 after graduating from Cardiff University with an MA in Translation Studies, where she specialised in subtitling, political and legal translation, and creative translation. She studied French and Classics at the University of Leeds, working abroad as an English language assistant for the British Council in France, and has continued to learn Spanish throughout her studies after A level.
At MTT, Amy oversees translation and interpreting projects from start to finish, from quotation and placing with translators, to internal review and delivery to the client.
In her free time, Amy can be found with her nose in a book, scribbling in notebooks, riding horses, or hiking in and around Worcester.
Hatty was recruited to MTT in 2022 after finishing her studies with a 1st in German at Aston University. Hatty’s modules included International Business Studies, German history and culture, Translation Studies and German Cinema. She also studied French alongside German, both in her free time and as part of a languages scheme run by her university. She takes pride in the fact that she has studied German since she was 13 (and as a 22-year-old, that is a lot of her life!) and still loves it to this day.
Hatty’s role at MTT as a Translation Project Manager means that she is in charge of overseeing the translation process from start to finish. Her language skills certainly come in handy, and her enthusiasm is the icing on the cake!
Hatty’s passions include music, cats, computer games, film and food. Hatty’s ideal evening would be playing Skyrim or The Sims with her cat on her lap, cooking up a storm of pasta while singing along to Nickelback, then sitting down to watch a horror film.
Our Team of Translators and Interpreters
Our team of translators and interpreters is our main asset, with their wealth of experience, skills and often unique sense of humour.
Having known many of them since the company was originally founded, we have developed an unrivalled relationship and feel we know their strengths and uniqueness in detail.
This pool of trusted professionals is possibly the biggest in the West Midlands – other companies may have more people on their database, but we feel we have developed a better understanding with our key suppliers than most.
We are always happy for you to speak directly to our translators if you would like to make sure they are suitable for your assignment – we believe by doing so we can create the best relationship and therefore the best end product for our clients.
In addition to our in-house typesetting skills, we often work with others who bring a little extra sparkle to our team. With a keen eye for design and sensitivity to layout, these professionals make sure your typeset documents look their best.
We're able to handle most formats such as Quark, Illustrator or InDesign and will work with small and large scale printing companies too to give you the best end product possible.
