  • Responsibilities

    As a result of continued demand for our products and services, Translations.com is looking to for a bright, self-motivated Project Manager to join our “startup within an established company” and work on a language translation project for our global clients. 

    Summary:

    The position of Project Manager is a key player at Translations.com. Project Managers execute all language/translation projects from start to finish and serve as a single point of accountability for their successful completion. They are responsible for the entire life cycle of all language/translation projects assigned to them and serve as a single point of contact/accountability. Individuals in this role are either more inclined to stick to a Project Management-oriented career path (working to become an Executive or Senior Project Manager, for instance) or a Management-oriented career path (working to become a Team Lead or Department Manager, for instance).

     

    Position Responsibilities:

    • Strong organizational skills, attention to detail, and the ability to multi-task
    • Ability to prioritize activities on a daily basis to accomplish project goals
    • Ability to generate and maintain budgets and schedules
    • Superior writing and communication skills
    • Willing to learn new things, be open to challenges and thrive on success
    • Establish long-term pricing agreements with contract linguists globally
    • Liaise with sales and production staff to clarify assignment needs and goals
    • Juggle multiple priorities simultaneously in a fast-paced environment
    • Perform quality checks at various stages of process to ensure quality and accuracy (proofreading, communication with linguists and client reviewers on specific linguistic issues)

    Qualifications

    Desired Skills:

    • 2-3 years experience in a Project Management role
    • Previous localization experience
    • Experience with standard translation management tools (Trados, Wordfast, SDLX, Catalyst)
    • Knowledge of Acrobat, HTML and XML
    • Fluency in a second language or any level of linguistic skills highly appreciated
