Read more about

Sharon is the driving force behind ST Communications.


Starting her life in Zimbabwe, and spending most of her adult life in South Africa – she appreciates the diversity of culture and languages. This, partnered with her background in sales, her naturally strong leadership, and high focus on delivery – she has grown ST Communications into the reputable agency it is today.


It gives her great pride to have been a part of some of the largest localisation projects in Africa bringing IT, social media, mobile phones, medical devices, etc. into Africa. When she’s not confidently organising and structuring her team for delivery – she can be found breathing through her yoga exercises, cooking up a storm or listening to music whilst watching the African sun set on the day.

Luyanda is our Lead Xhosa Translator and Terminologist, who doubles up as Project Manager.


His knowledge and expertise are in the medical, technical, education and localisation fields; and whilst clients love his ability to apply language skills such as grammar, syntax, semantics, style and appropriate terminology, they also really appreciate how he maintains strict confidentiality concerning clients and translated materials + his ability to bounce into the role of Project Manager when needed, in order to ensure excellent customer service.


Luyanda is our resident fashionista and his flair for fashion brings a splash of interest into the office. Depending on his mood (and the weather), he could either make an entrance in bow-tie and velvet jacket, or Bermuda shorts and sneakers!

Troy is the youngest member of the office (and probably the healthiest) who is the Project Manager for both our translation and localisation clients.


In the fast-moving world of agile translation and localisation, Troy keeps up with his clients’ demands with a focus on efficiency. He loves keeping up to date with our client’s different platforms, tools, and programs and enjoys training our translation teams to become proficient in all of them.


When he isn’t keeping up with the tech, he’s keeping up with his health and fitness (and we always see either a berry smoothie or green tea on his desk)!

Craig is our Project Manager and international localisation guru.


He has worked on our high-profile projects including social media giants, mobile phones, IT, search engines, etc. Our clients love how he blends his agile approach, ninja multitasking skills, and project management to meet tight deadlines and client’s needs at the same time.


When he’s not chasing the challenge of a fast-moving project, you’ll find Craig surfing our local waves, whilst enjoying the quiet tranquillity of the ocean.

Jackie is one of our Project Managers (serving both international and local clients) who loves breaking down the communication barriers to unite us all.


With a background in sales and buying and many years of experience in the translation industry, Jackie has forged great relationships with both clients and translators – through her warm and helpful people nature. Her motto is work hard, play harder – and after focusing on client work, she has the tendency to transform into a party animal after hours! Hobbies… definitely not gourmet cooking!
