Anglocom founder Grant Hamilton didn’t just hang out his shingle—he made sure he was ready first! He began by earning a translation degree at Quebec City’s Laval University. Next he spent ten years honing his talent as an English copywriter and marketing specialist in Toronto. After that came a stint as PR manager for a computer firm. Then, with his education and experience in perfect alignment, he brought it all together at Anglocom—and hasn’t looked back since!
Now Grant’s name pops up everywhere. He teaches French-to-English translation in the certificate program at New York University. He is a board member of OTTIAQ, Quebec’s professional order for translators. He is president of the Quebec wing of the Duke of Edinburgh's Awards. And he is a popular translation workshop presenter and conference organizer, both in Canada and the United States. Grant was also the 2009 winner of ATA’s Alicia Gordon Award for Word Artistry in Translation.
Today Grant continues to provide daily input and guidance to the talented stable of translators and writers at Anglocom.
