ROGER SONG

Developer/Consultant

Hi! I’m a programmer that currently specializes in web development, mainly on the WordPress platform. I also provide technical consultation for a number of clients in the translation industry.

I currently work full time at new-a, a marketing and advertising agency that focuses on the Asian-American demographic. My role as Application Development Manager means I oversee all technical projects including website and app development for our various clients and campaigns. I still like to get my hands dirty from time to time though and work on code myself whenever I have the chance.

On the side, I also provide consultation to a number of clients in the translation industry. I’m happy to say that I have partnered with Plunet, the makers of BusinessManager and have specialized in their software. My services include not only implementing and training users on the platform, but also process consultation to maximize efficiency in the translation project workflow.
