You can use GlobalSight for the various translation project tasks carried out by Project Managers, translators, reviewers, DTP engineers, clients and so on.
The prerequisite is that the project has been set up by the administrator, in cooperation with the Project Manager. For more details, see Setting up GlobalSight.
Project Managers or clients request translations by creating translation jobs. You can follow the progress in My Jobs.
