Our Professors Are Also Professionals

Every day Martiño Prada uses his TLM degree experience in his work on the globalization team at Netflix, and he credits working with professors who are also industry professionals for helping him gain the necessary skills and hands-on expertise.

My name is Martino Prada. I work at Netflix as a program manager on the globalization team and I’m a TLM graduate.

As a program manager, I think about ways to localize our content in the most efficient way, so our users can enjoy the Netflix shows and movies and have a seamless experience from a product perspective, from a content perspective.

For example, thinking about how can we localize the content that we get from India into the rest of the languages in the world? And what sort of strategies we can use to adapt the language, the visuals, how the shows are presented in the product.

“The trip to Asia was awesome. We learned a lot and I brought back a bunch of plans and initiatives.”

I chose the Middlebury Institute because I thought the TLM program is unique in many ways. It was very career-focused and very practical. We got to understand from professionals in the industry how their day-to-day works, what are the things that they do in their companies. I think that was very valuable. The fact that our professors are actually professionals with experience in the industry.

A lot of the classes were very hands-on. We actually had to manage localization projects and actually deal with real clients and build solutions for localization problems.

Honestly, MIIS just opened my mind and opened the doors for the opportunity to explore my potential as a professional and it opened the doors for a great career that I know I wouldn’t have been able to have without those two years at MIIS, without that opportunity.
