Jana Krekic is the founder and CEO of YLT Translations, the largest Amazon-centric localization firm in the space today. An international public speaker, polyglot and a translator herself, Jana has considerable knowledge and experience in e-Commerce and Amazon, which she has - and continues to - leverage on to help 7- to 9-figure businesses expand on a global scale.
She heads around 80 native speakers, who take content and localise it to convert and engage in a seller's target country. Each translator is well-versed in Amazon's dynamic and ever-changing landscape, and can perform the keyword research and write the copy needed to improve conversions and engagement.
The result is a localisation firm that transposes and transcreates content to maximise conversion and engagement. Clients range from medium-sized enterprises ready to take the plunge to global expansion, to eCommerce monoliths seeking to spread their footprint.

After leaving a teaching career in 2008, Fiona Soutter saw the opportunity to establish an online business. The mother of three was drawn to the idea of being a ‘digital nomad’ - she wanted the flexibility of working anywhere, anytime.
Fiona dedicated her efforts to learning about the world of digital marketing. She founded a consultancy business, spoke at events, and published books.
However, a car accident in 2014 derailed Fiona’s progress, and she had to fight through years of chronic pain and all that came with it to re-establish herself.
In 2020, Fiona launched her e-commerce business. By combining her accumulated skills with a powerful purpose, she developed a brand that resonated with her audience, which resulted in her being able to create a multiple 7-figure business within 18 months. Fiona is now three years into her e-commerce journey and is now close to launching in the EU.
