One of the significant determinants of success is the recognition of your passion. If you know what you truly want, nothing can stand between you and your goal. David Garcia Gonzalez, the founder, and CEO of a localization company, GoLocalise, a one-stop shop that offers audiovisual translation services, owes his success to his passion. David is an Anglo-Spanish entrepreneur, best-selling author, influencer, and business investor. He was born in Spain and moved to The United Kingdom in the mid-90s for his studies.
David completed his combined degree in linguistics, languages, and computing from Essex University, London. He also did Masters in Applied Translation Studies (Legal Translation) from the London Metropolitan University. But his true passion for languages led him to take an online Masters in Audiovisual Translation from Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, where he learned dubbing, localization, and subtitling.
David worked as a bilingual translator and voiceover artist for ten years and then decided to start his own localization business, GoLocalise. Coming to England as a foreigner and setting up a new company was never an easy challenge for him. In fact, it was a serious risk, which David was willing to take for the sake of learning, meeting different types of people, and being able to take suitable risks for his business at the right moment.
David Garcia Gonzalez has remarkable business, marketing, and people management skills. David and his business won many awards. He won “Outstanding Entrepreneur’ at Global Excellence Awards and Best Business Awards. He also won the ‘Most Inspiring Member’ and ‘Entrepreneur Of The Month’ awards at the Entrepreneur’s Circle – the brainchild of serial entrepreneur Nigel Botterill.
Today, GoLocalise provides high-quality localization services with over a thousand subtitlers, translators, and voiceover talents. The company has a large clientele of four hundred diverse clients from more prominent translation companies, production houses, e-learning businesses, and blue-chip multinationals. David shared the results of his power of self-belief in his autobiography ‘Child-Biting, Chorizo And Chancing Your Arm,’ a #1 Amazon best-seller. David’s mission is to help and empower other entrepreneurs with his services and enable them to grow their business in the right direction.
