I am curious to know what the average salary range is for a translation project manager is the United States. I am applying for project management positions and I have a Bachelors in Spanish & Portuguese, 2 years of project management experience (in the public utility industry), a Masters in Translation Studies, 2 years of experience translating at an export company, and about a year and a half of experience doing freelance translations.

Many agencies request that you send your resume and salary expectations. What are your thoughts?

Thank youicon_smile.gif

Salary expectations? Nov 3, 2016

Have this prospect ask you for your salary expectations?

Salaries for translation project managers vary across the country, from 40K to 50K, if the current postings on are to be believed.

Geographic location plays a large part in how much you get offered and how expensive it is to live in that particular location. I wouldn't bother with an offer in New York City, for example.

The position's description may just be window dressing and not include everything the candidate will be required to do. Ask the tough questions.
