David Garcia Gonzalez is a multi-award-winning entrepreneur, Amazon best-seller author, business investor, and influencer. He also owns a localization business, GoLocalise, that offers localization and translation services and provides subtitles and voiceover talents.
David was born in Spain and moved to the United Kingdom in the mid-90s to fulfill his desire of learning languages and seeking adventure. Since he is bilingual and also fluent in Italian, he worked as a translator and voiceover artist for a decade. David has a combined degree in linguistics, languages, and computing, a Masters in Applied Translation Studies, and another Masters in Audiovisual Translation, majoring in dubbing, subtitling, and localization. Even with a high-quality educational background, his heart was in learning and exploring languages, so he decided to start his own localization company named GoLocalise in 2008.
Starting a new business in a foreign country was never an easy step to take. David took this risk in the hope of learning, meeting new people, and taking calculated risks for his business whenever required. In his book ‘Child-biting, Chorizo and Chancing Your Arm How I Made It Big in Britain,’ David illustrates his journey to come to the United States and start his business in a sparkling, witty, and light way. He talks about his struggles and his achievements against all the odds. The book sheds light on the story of David’s life and tells how an ordinary person can achieve extraordinary success. The autobiography is ranked as the #1 Amazon best-seller with lessons to teach you how to become bulletproof in life and business.
Today, GoLocalise is one of the United Kingdom’s most successful and renowned localization companies with a substantial clientele of four hundred from different sectors of production houses, big translation companies, e-learning businesses, and multinationals. The firm has over one thousand voiceover talents, subtitlers, and translators in over a hundred languages. David has won many entrepreneurial awards and worked with international brands like Warner Bros, BBC, The V&A Museum, and Viacom. He wants to share his experiences with other entrepreneurs and aims to empower them to expand their business in the right direction with appropriate strategies and generate a steady income. He offers business coaching services and also provides buying out to the entrepreneurs who want to sell their startups for any reason.
