Operations Manager

Jim Hearn

Translation Project Expert

Jim Hearn joined Atlas Translations in early 2012 as a Project Manager and is now our Operations Manager. With a background in market research and hospitality, Jim has now spent over 10 years working with languages. Jim has also amassed a wealth of experience in managing multilingual projects across a range of services.

In 2021, Jim and his family made a big move to live in Bath, where he’s enjoying making connections and being part of the business community there.


Keen to expand his own linguistic capabilities, Jim has been enjoying studying Japanese for the last couple of years.

Calm and organized, he’s excellent at managing projects large and small and keeping the office team running smoothly.

Every company needs a Jim Hearn, and we are very lucky to have him!

Tommy the Dog

Jim loves and works with Tommy the Dog, who you can read more about here! A rescue dog from Serbia, Tommy landed firmly on all four paws when Jim and his family adopted him.

Tommy’s tea-making skills are a bit lacking, but he is greatly loved regardless. His love of naps, sausages, and cheese (excellent choices) more than makes up for it. Although Tommy lives with this family in Bath, he’s always a welcome visitor to the St Albans office.

Mirela Watson (feedback for Jim)

Clare’s review of my CV was incredibly helpful, thorough, and added a lot of value to it. She also gave a good look at my LinkedIn profile and website, pointing out their strengths and weaknesses, from the point of view of an experienced professional who runs a successful LSP. And she did all that while raising funds for the Fairlynch Museum! I am very grateful for Clare’s comments and a huge admirer of the work she does helping translators and her community. Thank you, Clare!

Claudia Torres (feedback for Clare – CV Clinic)

I highly recommend Atlas translations. James turned around a complicated set of legal translations quickly and professionally. Excellent service at a reasonable cost.

I highly recommend Atlas Translations. They helped me out with the translation of tax documents. They provide a quick and reliable service. And I would 100 % use them again next time I need a document translated. Special thanks to Stefania who has been of great help.
