About the Translation Mastermind

The Translation Mastermind is the offspring of the Standing Out Mastermind, which in turn grew out of the group known as Standing Out – all formed by Andrew Morris. In January 2024, the Translation Mastermind was taken over by Susan Ring as moderator. Tanya Quintieri, who has been involved from it’s early days, continues to support Susan on the technical and operational side of the venture. 

What makes the Translation Mastermind different? Well for a start it is a troll-free zone, where ideas are always open to challenge, but people are treated with respect at all times. That alone is a novelty. Besides that, it has a positive focus, helping members to concentrate on what is going right, and build on that, rather than constantly ranting about what’s going wrong. Problems are raised, but with a view to solutions, rather than as a springboard to endless hand-wringing. We celebrate achievement and success and encourage mutual support and learning. And finally, there is always an element of personal development thrown in, based on the knowledge that to thrive – rather than merely survive – we need to go beyond basic translation and business skills and look at the story we tell ourselves, and its impact on whether or not we fulfil our potential. 

The Translation Mastermind Community has come a long way. But all along it thrived because of its followers and then members. This positive and uplifting community has offered a place of celebration, creation, inspiration and growth for years.
