Learning the HR language
Mondelēz International (MDLZ) has people working in some 165 countries around the world – so you can imagine how many languages are spoken. I’m Team Leader for the Translations team within MBS. Any document that MBS produces, we translate it in response to online and telephone requests. I was working as a freelance translator when I was contacted by MDLZ through LinkedIn. I knew a lot about Cadbury, if not the company behind it, and the location was perfect for me, so I jumped at the chance. But HR has been a new arena for me, so I’ve had to get up to speed with all the terminology.
