Succès, successo, éxito. However you say it, it means success…and Ralph Strozza can translate it. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in Marketing and French (with a minor in Spanish) from NIU in 1981, Strozza began a journey that would lead him to where he is today— owning and managing one of the leading and most reputable corporations in the foreign language translation industry.
A dedicated alumnus, Strozza gives of his time, talent, and resources to students both inside and outside the classroom. Through the donation of translation software, he created an unparalleled opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to receive valuable classroom training in Trados, a state-of-the art translation system used worldwide by professional translation companies and large multinational corporations, and is considered the standard for the translation industry.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
