Christophe Djaouani

Senior Vice President  |  SDL

Following the acquisition of Donnelley Language Solutions (DLS) by SDL, Christophe is now responsible for the DLS team within SDL, focused on specialist sector and regulated industries. Beginning his career in the multilingual communications field in 1998, Christophe has used his 18+ years of industry experience to drive the DLS strategy, building a team of highly-skilled experts to respond to client needs and shape the group. His vision grew the DLS team, its range of services and its client base, across all the industry sectors, prior to the company's joining forces with SDL.


Having first gained experience as a project manager for translation services in New York, Christophe took on his first production supervisor role for Europe and Asia in RR Donnelley's London office. He eventually moved into a sales role at the Paris office before leading the DLS team, and then joining SDL. 


With a visionary and consultative approach, he transformed the DLS to a market-leading global organization providing a comprehensive localization service portfolio across four continents. Christophe has focused on building an international team and invested in innovative language technologies to achieve 15 years of consistent growth. 


A graduate in Sales Techniques from the University of Grenoble in his native France, Christophe has gained a good cultural awareness over the years and understands how to connect with customers internationally. In addition, he has a proven track record working with Fortune 500 clients and an in-depth knowledge of current trends across the industries and sub-sectors that SDL serves.
