Doug has served with SIL International for over 25 years, 17 of which were spent in West Africa. He worked as a linguist and translator for the Maasina dialect of the Fulfulde language, and later used his technology skills to train SIL and partner organizations in language technology skills to increase their productivity in language development work. His interest in language technology began with a LingTranSoft mail server that he moderated to provide tips and help to field teams. Doug is currently SIL's International Coordinator for Language Technology Use and is based in Grand Rapids, Michigan when he and his wife are not traveling.
