Delsurtranslations rolls out project management training courses

Delsurtranslations has been offering project management support and recruitment for many years so it was only fitting that we began to roll out localization project management training courses and workshops. We work closely with LSPs of all sizes and specialties, and have earned our reputation as project management specialists time and time again.

Over the years, we have seen a great need for — and relevance of — translation and localization project management in the language services industry. But we have also noticed the region limitations in project management education, specifically for the localization industry. As a forward-thinking, proactive company, the only solution for us was to bridge this educational gap and begin to train professionals interested in pursuing or advancing their career in project management. So far, since 2019, the experience has been a win-win.

With a responsive, knowledgeable, and committed team of CLPM certified PMs with more than ten years of experience in project management, we have offered over twenty virtual courses that ranged in complexity from basic to advanced and have even tutored students working toward their multimedia localization diploma at a local university.

Some students are just starting their professional career and want to become project managers; others are experienced PMs who want to perfect their skills and focus on building a trustworthy and competent professional profile. Beyond their background, we help our students become experts in understanding (and successfully managing) all stages of the translation and localization process for any vertical.

Some of the contents taught:

Principles of today’s translation industry

Characteristics, processes and variables of project management

The triple restriction: Time, cost, quality

Project life cycle

Project analysis: Correct budget and time estimates

Planning, executing, monitoring and closing projects

Risk and contingency management

Troubleshooting

Leadership skills

When asked in a survey how their experience was, students have been very enthusiastic, unanimously agreeing that the courses were enlightening as many did not have a previous background in project management. In fact, we are thrilled to announce that upon completion of our courses, more than thirty students are now working as localization and translation project managers — the greatest reward we could receive!
