What is external project management?
Any definition of the term project management usually includes comprehensive planning, control, implementation and monitoring of projects, i.e., specific and defined target-oriented projects. Many traditional project management processes have been standardized and numerous educational institutions offer the relevant training.
External project management is the term used when an institution or a company commissions an external person or company to implement a project or plan. As a rule, however, this usually involves the internal company resources, to a greater or lesser extent.
EHLION specializes in providing experienced external project management experts for all types of localization and translation projects. Our professional project managers can take the pressure off your internal staff and produce technical documentation tailored to your specific requirements.
Our services for your projects
Thanks to the Internet and remote desktop connections, our external project managers can be extremely flexible and are able to support your team remotely, coordinating highly complex translation projects in a professional manner. Authorizations can be managed using the server solutions of industry-standard translation management tools. These allow you to specify which tasks your external project manager can see and edit,
leaving the ultimate control of the project in the hands of you, the client. Remote management also reduces the number of routine tasks your own team has to perform, freeing up time and energy for more important projects. Of course EHLION project managers can also work for you at your location if you wish, strengthening your own team in a highly efficient manner.
We can provide you with high-quality international project management services in the fields of translation and localization, including the following project steps:
- Preparation of a comprehensive project plan
- Coordination of all project managers and translators involved
- Analysis and preparation of source texts
- Selection of suitable translators
- Communication with all parties involved
- Control of all individual steps of the localization project
- Comprehensive quality assurance
Advantages and benefits of external project management
In the event of temporary staffing shortages, EHLION’s external project management service will save you the hassle of having to induct new short-term staff or those joining the team from a different department. Because you will always have immediate access to experts who are au fait with the basics of project management for complex localization projects.
EHLION’s project managers are experienced and multilingual, usually hold translation qualifications themselves, and are expert in the use of the most common translation software. Their trained eyes enable them to see how files have to be prepared before the project is created, to ensure that the translation processes will run efficiently. And in addition to this, you will get used to working in an intercultural environment as part of an intercultural team.
EHLION’s external project managers will manage all project steps for you – from project conception through to delivery of the finished translation. They also deal with communications in all directions, especially with the translators, as well as clarifying queries and passing on all necessary reference materials and style specifications.
Our professional external project managers will quickly step in to free up bottlenecks within your company or to manage any large localization projects that require immediate attention. You can employ EHLION’s project managers on an hourly or part-time basis and, if necessary, for several weeks or months at a time.
