The translation manager is the person responsible of a full translation process. It is more or less comparable to an Editor role in monolingual sites.
A full translation process will include:
- Definition of the translation unit, i.e. things to be published together
- Definition of schedules
- Recruitment and management of translators
- Recruitment and management of proofreaders
- Feedback for translators
In case of commercial activities it will include contact with client (including inside company) and management of prices, in case of non-profits it will most often imply a participation to the international development of the relevant activity.
A multilingual cms should provide automated creation of a Translation managers group.
