Aaron Schliem, CEO/Co-Founder
After completing degrees in International Relations and Molecular Biology at the University of Wisconsin, Aaron set off for Chile, where he began his first language company with a focus on writing and editing scientific journal submissions for Chilean scientists and on developing unconventional language learning plans for motivated professionals.
Upon his return to the US, all roads led to Seattle where Aaron joined two linguists and a software developer to launch Glyph Language Services in 2001. With the sweat of our collective brow, and never forgetting that language is more an art than a science, Glyph has seen robust growth, our message resonating first with the top businesses and organizations in the US Pacific Northwest and eventually with clients worldwide.
As CEO, Aaron drives Glyph's strategic vision, which is oriented toward mobile application localization, games & multimedia localization and specialized terminology consulting and data development. With machine translation emerging as a viable tool to decrease localization costs, Aaron is driving Glyph's implementation of machine translation focusing on innovative strategies to improve post-editing speed and translator satisfaction.
