Session 1: Managing Translation Business: from spreadsheets to Protemos

When translation company grows, it gets harder for the owner or CEO to keep everything in mind, and the company needs the tools and processes to effectively manage team, projects, and finances.  Almost everyone starts with spreadsheets applications, but they are good just for the basic usage. On more advanced levels, growing companies adopt translation business management systems like Protemos.  This session will give you the brief description of the system and its advantages.

Session 2: Automating Feedbacks to Translation Vendors with TQAuditor

To get better translators for your team, you need to train them, give detailed feedback on every delivery, assess the quality of every job, and help them to understand how they can grow professionally. But it’s a huge amount of work, how to it quickly without overloading your PMs and over staffing your QA department? This session is about the experience, approach and solution which streamline the translators training based on quality feedbacks.
