I've been translating for a large number of years now and in the fall I'm moving to the UK from Portugal. I would like to give translation project management a go. I have a course in Project Management but as such never put it to use, professionally that is. I have, however, extensive experience in the field as this has been a job requirement over the years. Any suggestions or know of an agency looking for a PM?

Thank you

Where can one attend courses in PM? Apr 11, 2008

Hi!
Your thread has risen my interest as your were mentioning you attended a course in PM. Where was that???
I would also be interested in working as a PM, but apparently there aren't that many available...
Good luck!

Isn't management very BORING?! Apr 12, 2008

What attracts you to project management work?

It seems that being a low-level supervisor is one of the most boring things to do.
Translation is creative; managing is tedious.
Especially if you work with "international teams" (very popular nowadays!). Often the manager knows nothing about the languages and the specialisation fields... the manager just manages and supervises, and does paperwork, and satisfies the "requirements" of the bigger bosses. Seems just awful. Very repetitive job, almost like in a factory.
