  • Responsibilities

    The T2 (Team Two) is a unique Production Department that handles projects for all departments, but typically only sets up the projects and does not see them through to completion. T2 acts as a relief mechanism for the day shift employees who are heading home for the day, by starting projects submitted by Sales (especially in other time zones, Fridays and Israeli holidays) that need immediate attention. T2 also functions in the capacity of handling same-day rush jobs, as well as taking care of emergencies that arise during non-day shift hours.

     

    Responsibilities:

    • Place as many jobs as possible that come into Production—they focus first on the most important jobs and work down.
    • Coordinate jobs from beginning to end that are due during their shift.
    • T2 does not normally coordinate any DTP jobs. T2 is responsible for receiving the files submitted under the job, filing them, making sure they correspond with the job description and passing them to the internal DTP team for pre-flight.
    • Help daytime shift by, placing jobs, FEing jobs, delivering jobs after hours and passing files off from translator to proofreader, etc.
    • Answer any questions that other employees and/or linguists might have when they can't get in touch with daytime shift PMs.
