Daniel Benito

Daniel Benito

Head of R&D / Déjà Vu co-creator

I was raised in a bilingual environment, and was introduced to computers at a very young age. I first got involved in translation when I started helping my father with the translation of repetitive hardware and software manuals. This, combined with my interest in programming, inevitably led to the creation of Déjà Vu in 1993. I went on to study at Imperial College in London, where I obtained an MSc in Mathematics and Computer Science. After completing my studies, I returned to work at Atril Solutions, where I now oversee the future vision and development of the products.
Daniel is fluent in English and Spanish.

Etienne Tessier

Head of Training and Consulting Services

As a loyal user of Déjà Vu with a passion for translation, I was delighted to join Atril Solutions once I had completed my Master in Multilingual Specialised Translation. After a stint in charge of technical support alongside Lorenzo Benito, I was given the opportunity to work in the R&D department and make a proactive contribution to the development of Atril products. Drawing on this experience, I am now in charge of the Training and Consulting Department. I enjoy meeting our clients (from freelance translators to enterprises operating worldwide) and discussing their translation issues with them, setting up systems adapted to individual requirements and the many opportunities of learning and sharing: I am delighted and excited to be working towards satisfying those who place their trust in us.
Etienne is fluent in French, English and Swedish.

Smita Bonde

Senior Developer for TEAMserver

After completing my engineering degree in Information Technology, I joined an IT department of a multinational finance company in India. Working through all software development phases for significant number of years, I gained experience in development, analysis and design. The challenge of designing and enhancing the architecture of a language tool is what attracted me to Atril Solutions’ international environment. At Atril Solutions, I am leveraging my knowledge and skills to ensure the on-going enhancement of the TEAMserver product. Understanding user requirements for the application and designing the application accordingly is what interests me in this position, where I hope to continue to hone my skills and knowledge.
Smita is fluent in English, Hindi and Marathi.

Claudio Duarte da Costa

Head of Sales

Born in Germany to Portuguese parents, I soon developed a major hobby: languages!
It was only natural that I would eventually want to end up in an environment where I could put that into practice. Therefore, once I had finished my secondary education in my hometown of Darmstadt, I went to Portugal where I obtained a Master’s Degree from Coimbra University.
After working there for several years in various companies operating worldwide, I have now joined Atril Solutions, working in Paris as Business Development Manager.
The multicultural environment at Atril Solutions and the opportunity to work with clients from all over the world is without doubt a fitting destination where I can combine my profession with my favourite hobby.
Claudio is fluent in German, Portuguese, English and French.

I’ve been taking computers apart, putting them back together, and puzzling out how software works since early childhood, and my family background is language-oriented and bilingual, in Spanish and English. I’ve been with Atril Solutions since 2004, working in administration and customer service, and now I’ll be attending to Atril Solutions’ IT needs and maintenance.

See you soon
