What Do Project Managers Do?

March 23, 2022

Gain insight into a project manager’s skill set to discover how it can benefit your own business!

With the technological advances in translation and the impact of the pandemic on the economy, some freelance language professionals are eager to learn additional skills and diversify. One option is to manage translation and interpreting projects as a freelancer.

Working from her personal experience, the speaker will describe a day in the life of a project manager (PM). You’ll examine some of the most common tasks performed by PMs, what skills and interests they need for the job, and how labor laws apply to freelance PMs.

This webinar will show you not only how you can add project management services to your business but also how understanding the job can improve your working relationship with agency clients.

You will learn how to

  • Recognize the tasks that make up a PM’s job
  • Understand the skills needed to manage translation and interpreting projects
  • Assess the tools and software PMs use
  • Analyze what project management skills also apply to your own business
  • Use the PM’s skill set when subcontracting on large jobs and working for agencies

This webinar is organized with the assistance of the French Language Division.
