Project Managers create translation jobs and steer the work through the various activities needed to produce a ready translation and send it to the end user.

Project Managers work in co-operation with translators, reviewers, DTP engineers, admins, and so on.

Use the PM user account, which was created during the setup process. Contact your administrator if you do not have the account details.

Use My Jobs to track the progress of your jobs.

Before beginning, check the software requirements.
