Gregory is one of the founders of the modern day Translation Industry. He is also the founder and CEO of One Planet. An indomitable fighter for the integrity and clarity of each of our translation projects, he speaks fluent Russian, Polish and Italian.
Chris is our Director of Projects. This means that all our Project Managers report to him. He lives in a state of constant terror making sure that all our projects are done on time and on budget. To relieve stress he gets up at 5am to train for his hobby – competing in triathlons. He has qualified for the USA Triathlon Age Group Nationals. Not bad for a hobby!
Just about every major US airline has outsourced heavy maintenance to countries such as El Salvador, China and Mexico. There are now more than 700 of these offshore repair facilities. But too often the instruction manuals are only in English. In the meantime service technicians who are supposed to know English often do not know it well enough to do the job right. Wendy wants to change all that. Currently, she is on a crusade to persuade Boeing and Airbus to begin translating their manuals on a regular basis.
Kaitlin graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Interdisciplinary Japanese Studies and a minor in Linguistics. She has been to Japan several times and actually survived the 2011 Tohoku earthquake. Lucky us! What would we do without this problem solver?
Rwanda is a landlocked East African country whose green, mountainous landscape has earned it the nickname “Land of a Thousand Hills.” The country could only afford to support 500 scholarships in the United States, so the competition was fierce. Aline was one of those lucky 500 who won. In the United States she studied International Business with an emphasis on Accounting. She graduated Magna cum Laude, fell in love, got married, became an American citizen and stayed in the United States. She is fluent in French, English, Kinyarwanda and Swahili. Aline is an accomplished ballroom dancer. We love to see her dance Tango. Watch out “Dancing with the Stars”!
Clark is one of those people who think everyone was born with a natural understanding of computers. This makes him in high demand around the office. As our Master Project Manager (the highest level of expertise in Project Management practices and techniques), he can advise you on the best way to install German voiceovers, how to insert Korean into a predominantly Arabic Power Point presentation and a score of similar “weird problems”. Besides, he is fluent in Japanese.
Megan graduated at the top of the class from Kent State with a Masters in Spanish Translation. Since graduation she has continued in that vein at One Planet. Today she supervises translation of complex technologies deployed in multimillion dollar, one-of-a-kind equipment. Megan is full of surprises: in her spare time she plays tuba.
Emily runs 10 – 15 projects every day and when she gets frustrated she speaks quickly and abundantly in Spanish. She also speaks fluent Photoshop, InDesign, FrameMaker, Microsoft Office, Studio, WorldServer, MemoQ and Plunet. We come to her when we need a Russian interpreter in Peoria pronto! Or when we have an unexpected need for an Estonian – Turkish translator. In her spare time, she tries to keep up with her two Siberian Huskies, Chewie and Leia, who she claims are also bilingual.
Who would think that a man with a name like Schonenberger is as Italian as they come? Luca lives and works in Rome. As One Planet Italia’s Project Manager he is fluent in IBM and HP technologies and associated terminology. In his spare time he is an avid photographer. There is a special word in Italian: Bravo. Bravo stands for: reliable, efficient, eager to please and ready to walk an extra mile. We think of Luca as BRAVO!
Liz is a proud alumnus of Allegheny College, where she was a Chinese Studies major. Her love of the Chinese language and culture led her across the globe to explore the world’s most populous country. She has brought her passion for language study to One Planet. She is your go-to gal for all things InDesign and Studio. Liz is a survivor. She lived through a bike vs car accident while living in Beijing and came out of it with flying colors. That experience made her ready to take on any challenge that would come her way.
After graduating with honors in International Studies, Kim managed multimillion-dollar agreements for Fortune 100 Companies and their global ocean shipping carriers. Then, she flew to Korea to teach English. It was quite the adventure considering she didn’t speak Korean when she landed in Seoul. Today she does and she also speaks three other languages. There is more, much more in that head besides the knowledge of foreign languages and a passion for cultures of the world. Thank you Kimberly for discovering us!
If you have recently graduated from college and if you speak at least one foreign language we would like to talk to you.
Our project management principles and techniques differ from most other translation companies.
For that reason we do not require any extensive experience in Project Management.
We will train you. In fact, training at One Planet never stops. However, you have to move. That’s right; this is not a virtual position!
You would have to move to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The responsibility of our Project Managers consists of assigning work to technical translators and editors located around the world and supervising work in progress. The people we are looking for must have highly effective English verbal and written communication skills. This cannot be overemphasized as we write emails, make calls and submit proposals to our clients all the time.
One Planet is always seeking highly qualified Sales Executives. We are looking for people able to build strong relationships with prospective clients and maintain relationships with existing clients. This is an exceptional opportunity for the right candidate to step into a financially stable, dynamic company.

I just wanted to convey our enthusiasm for your company’s efficiency in providing translation services.
We are very appreciative of your efforts.
Working with Wendy and One Planet has been an extremely smooth process.
We have received prompt, reasonable quotes at the front end, with rapid turnaround of a high quality product.
I couldn’t ask for more!
You guys do a great job! There is nothing more important than being able to rely on someone to get the job done ON TIME.
Looking forward to future projects together.
It was a pleasure to work with you from my initial inquiry through our receipt of the finished products, all perfectly formatted to match the originals—very impressive.
But of course it was the translated text that we were most concerned about, and that was also excellent.
My specific thanks are for your wonderful mix of professionalism and friendliness, your excellent email communications, your willingness to work with aging PDF files, and your price.
Good to hear that One Planet plans to open an office in Stuttgart, even though I’m very satisfied with the performance of Gaelle Lacoste and Chris as well.
Hope their skill can be transferred to the new staff in Stuttgart smoothly.
One Planet is extremely professional and easy to work with.
Their group is flexible, responsive, and the quality of their translation is superior.
We have made many last minute requests that they have been able to turn around quickly and with accuracy.
I never worry that the job will get done on time and with great attention to detail.
After receiving 4-figure proposals for translating benefits material, we stumbled upon One Planet, who eagerly put a proposal together and delivered a document to us in less than 12 hours…for 1/3 the cost
It has been a pleasure working with all of you. Your staff has given us many suggestions that have saved us time and money.
We couldn’t be happier with your work.
You are the first translation company ever to get our specific terminology right on the first try.
I wanted to thank you and your team for all your help launching Stage III. You did an amazing job, considering how complex it was.
Perfect! I am truly looking forward to working with you again.
We give One Planet more responsibility because their performance is superior, relative to other translation companies.
Dealing with a new vendor is always a risky proposition, but One Planet has made it an easy task.
After more than one year of strong and intense cooperation with One Planet and IBM Translation Center in France, I want to express to you and to your entire Team my praise for the service you are delivering to us. From the beginning of our relationship we really appreciated the efforts made by your Team, in France as well as in US, to comply with IBMs specific processes and tools, and the willingness of everybody to reach required level of proficiency to be able to work efficiently.
Thanks to the hard work delivered by your project managers in Paris, our IBM Team works in a very fruitful and confident relationship with your staff. They know they can count on the high level of quality, reliability and productivity which is now approaching five million words per month. This fulfillment of our expectations and consistent delivery of all your commitments are the main reasons why my staff is relying on you more than on any other vendor. This is why One Planet has quickly become one of our key suppliers.
As a provider of translation services they are unsurpassed.
They are competent and diligent.
Their work is always done on time and the quality is the best we have seen.
Quality, timeliness, and professional attitude these are the attributes of the people of One Planet.
They are by far the most accommodating of our vendors, and certainly the most pleasant to deal with.
I needed 48 slides in PowerPoint, translated into Russian and Polish.
The lead time was less than a week.
Matt and all the others who worked on this job performed as expected and the slides were in our hands on time.
I would like to thank all the people who assisted on this project.
This was a very important presentation and it went well because of you.
One Planet certainly makes my work easier. Thanks.
Thank you for investing so much quality in our projects; specifically, thank you for your hard work, quality translations, superlative management, timeliness of delivery, on-the-ball communication, and overall support for the success of each project we have tasked you with.
It’s a pleasure being associated with you.
One Planet provides fast, courteous service at a reasonable price.
Our international patent department is very pleased to work with them.
As an IP attorney who has practiced for almost 20 years, I can confidently say One Planet is the best patent translation service I have ever used.
We started to give your company more projects and my goal is to continue giving you more this year based on the positive experience we’ve had.
The responsiveness of your staff is excellent and very much appreciated due to the nature of our Canadian projects.
I wanted to sincerely thank you for your help and all of you and your team’s efforts in helping us launch our products in the European market!
As we grow into other markets South America, United Arab Emirates, etc. I now am confident that I have a partner going forward that I can rely upon to get the highest quality of work done for us at the blink of an eye.
I look forward to doing continuous business with you as we expand our reach.
Chris, you and One Planet make my life so simple…
I greatly appreciate it!
