Head of Language Development & Localisation at what3words

Jamie is the Head of Language Development & Localisation at what3words, an award-winning tech company. what3words is the simplest way to talk about location. They’ve divided the world into a grid of 3m x 3m squares and assigned each one a unique 3-word address. Their vision is to become a global standard for communicating location –people use them to find their tents at festivals, navigate to B&Bs, and to direct emergency services to the right place. In parallel with their global ambitions, the app is available in 37 different languages and counting, each one developed to be an independent product (not a translation) that works seamlessly for those using it. You can type, speak, or scan a 3-word address and our system will recognise where you want to go in the world, to within just three metres.
