Job Description:

As a translation company, we mainly focus on localization projects (though we also do other types of projects), and your responsibility as a project manager would be the bridge of communication between the client and the translator.

Preparing the received files on CAT tools, as well as making sure all the specific requests from the clients are portrayed to the linguist. Reporting the comments and questions of the linguists to the client is also another major point as a PM. The main point is making sure whatever the client sends to us is sent back to the client with the best quality we can provide.
