Project Managers plan the project work by creating jobs, quoting and then dispatching jobs to the project team.

Project Managers can create jobs themselves or clients can also do it themselves.

Project Teams - translators, reviewers, DTP engineers and so on - then carry out the related project activities.

Project teams are informed of the jobs that have been dispatched by the Project Manager or client.

A standard workflow involves the following activities:

Impover09.jpg Reviewers validate the translation and add comments
Impover10.jpg Translators check the review comments added by the reviewer and make the review changes
Impover11.jpg Reviewers validate the content corrected by the translator

Impover13.jpg Reviewers check the DTP version
Impover14.jpg DTP engineers make review changes as needed
Impover15.jpg Translators check the review comments added by the LSO reviewer and make the LSO review changes


Project Managers follow up the ongoing project work to react to changes and keep the process moving smoothly from one phase to the next.
