How does a translation project manager contribute to the success of your multilingual projects?
A dedicated contact for your multilingual projects
For all your translation requests, whether urgent, large or complex, a dedicated project manager selects the translators, sends instructions and ensures the project runs smoothly. They are your single point of contact and are responsible for checking that the particular characteristics of your brand are properly applied to your translation project to guarantee optimal quality and on-time delivery.
Managing all types of multilingual media
For the Ubiqus Group, competence in the use of CAT (Computer-Assisted Translation) software is an absolute must when it comes to supporting our customers. Your media is varied – videos, catalogues, websites, etc. – and each is designed using specific technologies, for example, After Effects, InDesign or WordPress. We are skilled users of these technologies, working with them on a daily basis to offer you a service that is perfectly suited to your choice of media.
Coordinating subsidiary validation
Our project managers, native speakers of the relevant language, contact subsidiary representatives directly to validate the translated texts and to ensure that any changes requested are in line with the source text. The coordination of the various people involved in the project aims to save you time and obtain systematic validation of your content.
How is a translation project managed?
As with any long-term project, it is down to the project manager to organize the various steps and draw up a precise schedule. At Ubiqus, their role does not stop here. The project manager has a global view of the project, from initial quote to final delivery, with all the technical content management involved between the two.
- Understanding the need: who is the content intended for? What are the source and target languages?
- Analysis of the translation project (deadlines, file formats, volume).
- Formation of the team (translators, in-house linguists, technical experts).
- Preparation of files for optimization and provision of glossaries, translation memories and detailed briefs.
- Coordination of the translation and proofreading phases.
- Quality check and final delivery.

Turnkey services to bring you international success
A translation memory is similar to a terminology database. It is a bilingual file generated by CAT software that contains the corpus of translations carried out for any given customer. The project manager attaches the relevant customer-specific memories to each project to ensure the desired terminology is respected. Memories are often supplemented by a glossary. This results in consistent translations that meet the expectations and needs of the end customer.
Managing urgent translation projects
A translation is considered “urgent” when the delivery deadline is under 24 hours, or when more than 2,500 words have to be translated per day (e.g. a document of 10,000 words to be delivered in under 48 hours).
- Urgent translation project management requires having a competent team of translators in place.
- On average, depending on the language, subject area and type of document, a translator can translate between 1,000 and 2,000 words per day. If necessary, the translation project manager can divide up the original document(s) and distribute the work to the various native-speaker translators in the team.
