Caro van Aardt
Project Manager: Folio Translation Consultants
Growing up in an Afrikaans family in KwaZulu-Natal, Caro had to learn English very quickly, which helped her recognize language as a powerful tool that can either connect or divide people. Abandoning her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian, she embarked on a BA degree in Language and Literature Studies, BA Hons in Afrikaans and Dutch and an MA in Afrikaans General Linguistic Science at North-West University. She now devotes her energy to saving the world from incorrect language and grammar usage. Caro joined Folio as an interpreter and currently manages projects for our South African clients.

Favourite word/phrase: Le cœur a ses raisons que la raison ne connaît point. – Blaise Pascal (The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing.)
Secret superpower: Uncanny ability to calm clients and bolster colleagues’ morale.
The thing that I love most about my job is: The people I get to work with.
