Marianne VAN GINNEKEN
Localization Project Manager & Senior Desktop Publishing Specialist
Special skills: project management, desktop publishing
Marianne brings tremendous enthusiasm and motivation to her professional life. Her mission at Sparkling Lengua is to assist clients in the management of their multilingual localization projects, in particular those involving desktop publishing in one way or another. A graphic designer with a passion for languages, Marianne started out as a freelancer working for translation agencies. After a few years on her own, she joined Hitext, a translation and localization company based in Brussels where Fabien happened to be working as a project manager! In 2012, Marianne joined her husband's company as Managing Director, and their studio is now partnering with Sparkling Lengua. She has been a valuable partner ever since. "I have now been working with Fabien for almost 16 years – and it's been a great experience! We have both been trained in the same spirit at Hitext – a spirit we are keeping alive in our daily work."
When she's not Sparkling, Marianne loves travelling, reading and is curious about anything related to culture!
It's Sparkling time when I can indulge in my new passion: Shiatsu!
