Summary:From beginning to end, a translation project involves many steps, some of them not very well known. Many key players are taking part to create a perfect ‘text/product’ and a perfect layout/DTP. Who’s doing what? Who is involved in a project exactly? What is the target in terms of QA? This session is going to introduce attendants to the roles and duties of PMs, linguists (whether they are translators, editors and/or proofreaders) and other members of the team. We will also discuss the jobs of CAT tools specialists, DTP teams and other lesser know members of projects.
