So here we are. You started out with translation projects as a way to earn a bit of cash in college and, yeah, you were pretty damn proud of yourself. But now, many years and a career climb up the localization ladder later, you're dealing with the big data. We're not talking about a couple of pages and one from-this-language-to-that-language translation job anymore. And, let's face it, you know Excel spreadsheets and Microsoft Project cannot do the job.
You need power. Lots of power.
You know why. Now that you've made it to the big leagues, understanding big-league tools will make the difference between a work day with challenges you can bear and a work day that ends with you curled up in the fetal position on your desk, calling out for mommy. Seriously, you do not want to go there.
So what's all this talk about translation management systems and, real talk, how can you persuade your bosses that it's a better investment than therapy?
