Patricia Payro
 
Translation Coordinator
Patricia's position reflects her own diverse international background. She's the daughter of a British mother and an Argentine father and grew up in Europe's center of diplomacy—Geneva, Switzerland. In addition to English, she speaks fluent Spanish and French, and is conversant in Italian and German. Prior to her arrival in the U.S., Patricia spent five years as the head of the English department at the Jean Piaget École de Culture Génerale in Geneva, where she taught both English and French.

While pursuing a career in film (she was Associate Producer on two feature films, and worked on Alien3, Tales from the Crypt, and The Taking of Beverly Hills, among others), she also translated screenplays and subtitles for such films as The Bodyguard.

As manager of the French Department at Berlitz Language Services here in Los Angeles, Patricia was responsible for translation of a wide variety of projects for such corporate clients as Hewlett-Packard, Xerox and Universal Studios Hollywood.

More recently, she has translated packaging, manuals, advertising and other documents for Johnson Controls, Gerry baby products, Kenwood USA, Knowledge Adventure, Community Dynamics, and several marketing research firms.

She holds an M.A. in English Literature from the University of Geneva, with a minor in French Literature.
