Here are the qualifications and salary range for a Senior Project Manager (Academia) in Boston. For London, you should look at total compensation package (all benefits), not just the salary to help you finalize your decision. You then balance that information against all of your potential expenses (and we all know London isn't cheap)to determine if you want to go this way.


Master of Arts Degree in translation or related field; 1-2 years experience with the translation business; fluency in at least one foreign language; ability to deal professionally with clients; ability to show sensitivity to the needs of immigrants and international visitors; advanced level of expertise in computer hardware and software, including Macintosh and Windows operating systems, Microsoft Office, desktop publishing software, sound file editing, and Web applications, such as QuarkExpress, Microsoft Publisher, Adobe PageMaker, Acrobat, and Illustrator, Soundforge; Macromedia Dreamweaver, Flash, and Fireworks; knowledge of interoperability of these software applications with multilingual standards. Knowledge of translation memory tools such as SDLX, Trados, or DéjàVu desirable.

Hiring Salary Range: $31,300 - $40,300 Normal Starting Salary: $31,300 - $35,800. Position includes full benefits. Continuation of appointment beyond 9/30/05 is contingent on the availability of funds.

Here is one from Arizona -

The Translation Project Manager is responsible for evaluating and
recruiting translators, overseeing translation projects from start to finish, and ensuring translation projects are completed on schedule and within budget. This person will interface with translators, quality control personnel, clients, and prospective clients. This is an in-house position in our corporate office in Gilbert, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix. Relocation assistance will not be provided.

The ideal candidate for this position will have 2+ years experience in translation and project management. Candidates should be willing to take on new challenges and responsibilities, as this position allows for variety and creativity. Additionally, skills in computers, research, and
marketing are highly desired. Salary range is 30-35k annually plus bonuses, health care, and retirement benefits.

Another one - no salary, but mentions the kind of benefit packages one should look for.

STI is looking for new team players with a strong commitment to quality service. We offer a competitive salary plus bonus, a great work environment, professional development program, and a benefits package which include s medical and life insurance, paid vacation, sick & personal leave and a 401k plan.

Full Time Senior Project Manager and Project Manager Position
We are looking to hire both a full-time Senior Project Manager and a Project Manager.

This is NOT a technical/IT position. Previous language services industry experience preferred, must be energetic and a team player. Security clearance or the ability to obtain a security clearance are preferred.

Responsibilities will include, but will not be limited to:

Management of project/client requirements
Effectively communicate (written and verbal) with clients, operations, and translators
Cost management
Set guidelines, schedule and timetables
Troubleshoot/problem-solve client and translator issues
Interface/manage translation resources
Report project status with daily/weekly reports, both written and verbal
Actively participate in process improvement

So in America $30-35K (with some serious qualifications). However, that's from only two samples. It might give you a place to start for further research. Sorry for the length!

Consider the plusvalue of the experience as a PM to the plusvalue of the experience of a translator when applying for managerial positions later in life...
