Manuel was European Director for the B.I Corporation of Japan during the late 90’s and early 2000′s, establishing Pangeanic in a friendly buy-out in 2005. Collaboration with Valencia’s Polytechnic
research group and the Computer Science Institute led to the creation of the PangeaMT platform, becoming the first LSP in the world to implement open source Moses successfully in a comercial environment. He has been involved in several research national and EU projects mostly dealing with advancing the state-of- the-art machine translation and management processes.
Manuel keeps a vision from his days at Ford and Rolls Royce Industrial in the UK: automation and replicability are key for recurrent business revenue and commercial success. Both are the foundations for any scalable, large operation. Th language industry should not be any different. He has a keen interest in project automation, finding untapped sources of revenue beyond traditional sales (SEO, marketing automation), web crawling, machine translation, etc.
When not working and developing, Manuel spends time supporting NGO actions like the Malima Project, Translators Without Borders, medical research into rare diseases and sport events, like Pangeanic’s marathon team.
