The days of calling up translators from a rolodex are long gone and virtually all LSPs are using vendor management programs to assign projects, manage invoicing, and recruit vendors. But while an LSP may be able to carefully choose a system from among a host of various offerings or customize one of their own, translators make their own selections. They face a wide variety of solicitations and vendor management systems every day they open their inbox.
Deciding which LSPs a translator will work with or which projects they may accept are often based on more than just pricing. The vendor management system is very often the only real interface that translators may have with your company.
This webinar recording will help you consider the best features and factors of a vendor management system that will attract top talent, keep communication smooth, and improve the speed and quality of the projects.
