This Week’s Highlight: Jill Bishop

I was always fascinated by language and culture, and this fascination led me to get a PhD in Linguistic Anthropology with a focus on efforts in Israel to keep the Ladino language from disappearing. I took a non-traditional path from there, first working in corporate user research and then overseeing language and culture programs for Chipotle.

In 2005, I founded Multilingual Connections, a global translation agency based here in Evanston that I now run with my husband Mark. We work in over 75 languages and are proud of the values-driven company we’ve created and the impact our work has out in the world. We work with tech companies, law firms, government agencies, universities and not for profits – all of which have different types of language needs – but for us, it’s all about helping create connections.

When I’m not in the office, I can be found renovating houses, fostering puppies and spending time with our teen son.

Beth Emet has so many amazing members, each offering unique talents to the greater community. Share your news with all of us so we can both celebrate and get to know one another a bit better…. Especially during these (mostly) virtual times. Send your news to Bekki Kaplan, and if possible, please include a photo!
