Translation Team Management in 2018
Thursday, 19 July, 2018
From our experience, 7 of 10 translation companies lose up to 50% of profits by failing to manage their translation teams efficiently. This webinar covers the following topics:
1. Project management is more than just getting the translation done. From sourcing the right vendors to wrestling global payouts, there are many aspects in translation project management that come before the project arrives or after it is already delivered. These are often overlooked and result in disproportionate effort spent on non-productive activities. We’ll discuss them in detail and provide some real-world examples.
2. Teams are crucial to project management in today’s world. With customers’ quality requirements increasing and competition getting tougher, having the right team at hand and having the right team culture is more important than ever. We’ll share the best practices we have gathered over the last few years regarding project team management.
3. Building your team and tools into a unified ecosystem improves your bottom line. Translation is a low-margin business, so even a small addition to profits or reduction to costs can make all the difference. We discuss how having a harmonized ecosystem helps you sanitize your workflow and earn more.
