Paul Ballard

Paul established 3di in 2002 to combine his two areas of professional passion: his belief in the value of well-designed technical information and his commitment to making it easier to deliver multi-lingual versions of products to new markets. After completing his degree in Urban and Regional Planning (of all things) in 1990, he spent four years selling and project managing with Rank Xerox before finding his spiritual home in a small but well-established technical authoring and translation company, TMS. Over seven years, as TMS grew, so did Paul's experience: selling, resourcing and project-managing technical communication projects for large organisations across Europe. When the TMS team succumbed to the bursting of the dot.com bubble in 2001, Paul resolved to establish and build 3di around a team of experts, designing and consistently delivering successful projects for customers who needed and valued effective technical communication and product localization. Fourteen years on ... so far, so good.

In a volunteer capacity, Paul has served on the ISTC Council for 12 years, is a former President of the ISTC, and led the revival of the Technical Communication UK conference.
