Title: Translation and Localization Project Management
Subtitle: The art of the possible
Edited By: Keiran J. Dunne
Elena S. Dunne
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/ata.xvi
Series Title: American Translators Association Scholarly Monograph Series XVI
Description:

Over the past three decades, translation has evolved from a profession
practiced largely by individuals to a cottage industry model and finally to a
formally recognized industrial sector that is project-based, heavily outsourced
and that encompasses a wide range of services in addition to translation. As
projects have grown in size, scope and complexity, and as project teams
have become increasingly distributed across geographies, time zones,
languages and cultures, formalized project management has emerged as both
a business requirement and a critical success factor for language service
providers. In recognition of these developments, this volume examines the
application of project management concepts, tools and techniques to
translation and localization projects. The contributors are seasoned
practitioners and scholars who offer insights into the central role of project
management in the language industry today and discuss best-practice
approaches to the adaptation of generic project management knowledge,
skills, tools and techniques for translation and localization projects.
