Renée Jessen

CEO
Character Publishing & Localization

Cofounder and CEO of Character Publishing & Localization since 2010, Renée Jessen initially started working as a dubbing translator in the mid-nineties while studying rhetoric and history of ideas. The challenge of creating spoken language and personality in translations is still the favorite part of his job although business development takes up the majority of his time. Today, Character is both a global localization company focused on games and a publishing house of interactive experiences for children. Renée’s main focus is to balance the use of technologies and the translators’ need for a creative approach to their work.
