Hi, I'm Lucy and I'm a tech translator.

Tech Translation

noun

Making technical topics more accessible and inviting by being deliberate about the language used to talk about them.

Why is this site called “Tech to Human”?

  1. Technical problems are very seldom purely technical problems. Most, if not all, tech problems have a human component to them.

There are three main things you can do at Tech to Human:
