Who we are

  • Anja Jones

    Managing Director

    Equipped with a degree in Linguistics and French from Sussex University and 10 years of working experience in a variety of sectors including tourism & hospitality, financial risk assessment, logistics, administration and event management, Anja started AJT in 2010 with the aim of helping companies to access overseas markets.

    She’s most passionate about language change, eco-friendly brands and surfing – and will never say no to a bar of Kinder chocolate.

  • Sarah Steib-Weber

    Project Manager French

    Sarah started her language career with a degree in Business & Languages at Brighton University. During and after her studies she worked at the European Headquarters of American Express, where she forged a successful career spanning roles in process optimisation, people and relationship management and the launch, build and test of new products and platforms.

    Being trilingual, the move to a translation career was a natural step and Sarah has been an instrumental part of our company since its humble beginnings. From her home office in Lyon, France, she manages all aspects of our English to French translation projects.

    Sarah is a keen skier, sun worshipper and traveller. She loves spending time with her daughter Lili (already bilingual at the tender age of 5) and they can often be found embarking on weekend adventures in their VW California camper van.

  • Esteban Hack

    Project Manager German

    Esteban looks after our translation projects to and  from English to German, as well as Italian, Spanish and Dutch.

    Esteban is a keen surfer and ocean lover, and has recently graduated from Plymouth University with a batchelor degree in Marine Sports Science.

    Originally from Germany, he has lived in France, USA and UK, and speaks fluent German and English and has a good working knowledge of French.

  • Eva Mehringer

    Junior In-house Translator – German

    Although having only recently joined Team AJT Eva is already making her presence as In-house Translator felt! With a Bachelor’s degree in Transcultural Communication and a dual MA in Translation and Interpreting she is all set to become an integral member of our expanding German team.

    Hailing from Austria, Eva developed a love of languages at an early age and is now fluent in German, English, Spanish and French, honing and perfecting her language skills while volunteering and studying in Argentina, Chile, Columbia and France.

    Eva is a keen skier and snowboarder, loves all kinds of dancing and is looking forward to trying her hand at scuba diving and exploring the coast of Cornwall while she’s here.

  • Mark Jones

    Business Development Director

    As designer of the award-winning SleepingPod (now manufactured by Go Outdoors, the UK’s largest leisure and outdoor retailer) and designer and producer of the Dritek Hanger, Mark brings both creativity and commercial expertise to our team. Drawing on his extensive experience in sales and business development, he makes sure we stay on track and on trend with our product offering.

    Mark is a keen surfer and, when there’s no surf, loves going fishing on his kayak.

  • Nikki Cowland

    Office Administrator

    Nikki joins AJT armed with 20 years’ admin experience, a degree in Spanish and French and a PGCE under her belt. Having worked in local media, executive search, law firms and as a language tutor and proofreader, she brings a wide-ranging skill set to the team.  Nikki loves all things language and is already considering learning German!

    Cornwall is Nikki’s home turf, Newquay her home town, and she is passionate about both. If she’s not out walking the coast path, soaking up the sun or splashing about in the sea you’ll likely to find her in the kitchen planning her next culinary creation.

  • Théophile Clouet

    In-house Translator – French

    Théo graduated from his MA in Translation Studies at Durham University in 2014. He developed his interest in languages at secondary school where he started learning English and Russian. The subsequent move to study languages and translation at university level was a very natural one. He spent a year in St. Petersburg in Russia during his undergraduate studies and a year in Durham for his MA.

    As in-house French translator at AJT, he is responsible for translating and transcreating a variety of marketing and business texts for our local, national and international clients.

    His passions run the gamut from musical composition to creative writing.

  • Caro Thill

    Junior In-house Translator – German

    Having spent three months with us as an intern in 2015, Caro returned to Cornwall in 2016 to join our in-house translation team, having completed her Translation Studies degree at the University of Heidelberg, Germany.

    Hailing from Luxembourg, Caro speaks Luxembourgish, French, German and also a bit of Welsh for good measure! With a natural flair for creative translation, Caro has been busy translating a wide variety of business and marketing texts.

    In her spare time, Caro enjoys a bit of French boxing. She is also a big fan of British comedy, from Blackadder to Black Books, and intends to catch up on as many comedy programmes as she can now that she is back in the UK.

  • Vincente Morlet

    Junior In-house Translator – French

    Vincente joined our French in-house team in 2016. Originally from Orléans, France, she studied Applied Foreign Languages at the Université François-Rabelais in Tours, France, before going on to work in the translation department of the UNOPS arm of the UN in Copenhagen.

    Vincente is a linguist through and through, and can also speak German as well as Italian and a bit of Spanish. She is also a bit of a globetrotter, having lived in Denmark, Belgium and Dundee, and is now really excited to get to know the south west of England and further develop her translation skills.

    She can’t wait to try some Cornish seafood, and is looking forward to sussing out some new running routes and also giving surfing a go.
