Translation Project Manager (German)


The Translation People specialises in providing business to business translation and language services for its international client base through a global network of strategic partners. We are renowned for excellent customer service and our use of cutting edge technology to streamline processes, improve efficiency and lower costs. In recent years the company has achieved strong and continuous growth and has expanded its operations worldwide. We operate from our head office in Manchester, with additional offices in Birmingham, London, Glasgow, Paris, Bonn and Boston.


We now have a new opportunity for a Project Manager with good customer service and sales skills to join our Manchester team. You’ll be assisting our Account Managers in managing a portfolio of international key clients, maintaining client relationships and further developing business with our clients. The management of translation and localisation projects from quotation stage to final invoicing is also required. The Project Manager is responsible for liaising with the production team on the client’s requirements and for providing the best and innovative solutions to the client.


We are looking for a Project Manager with fluent German to native standard to be based in our Manchester office. The successful candidate should be a graduate in translation studies, modern languages or similar and should have very good written and spoken English. You should share our passion for language and delivering a high quality service.


Key attributes for this post are:

  • organisational skills,
  • a desire to exceed client expectations,
  • a keen eye for detail,
  • adaptability,
  • a high level of IT,
  • good communication skills.

You should have a professional attitude, be self motivated and able to work equally well unsupervised or as part of a team. Proven experience as a Project Manager is highly desirable but not essential.


Whilst your administrative and organisational skills are of paramount importance, your attitude and approach are of equal value. We are looking for a hardworking and conscientious individual with a positive outlook and cheerful personality; someone who is calm under pressure and who strives to deliver the best possible service to their clients.


If you wish to apply for any of these positions, please email your CV and a covering letter to Jasmin Schneider, Operations Director.
