He has served as mechanical engineer, quality assurance and technical trainer at Ford’s Valencia plant, Giddings & Lewis/ThyssenKrupp in Liverpool and Rolls Royce Industrial and Marine in Spain and Argentina, as well as a voiceover artist for the BBC and Granada TV. Manuel’s consultancy firm merged with the BI Corporation Japan in 1997 and he became a partner and technical director at the European subsidiary BI Europe in 2000. He revamped the European brand in 2005 as Pangeanic after a friendly buy-out. As a firm believer in language automation, Manuel became one of the TAUS founding members in Europe.

After that, Manuel directed research and development for customized statistical machine translation deployments and now neural machine translation. His vision is that any language service provider, translation department or translation client should be able to afford the technologies to change the way our industry provides services.
