Why a project management tool for translators?

With so many project management tools out there, today's freelancers are spoilt for choice but why should you use Fred, let alone any translator project management tool?

More and more businesses are taking advantage of project management software. For translators, this software presents many benefits, especially if you choose a program that meets your specific needs.

Nowadays freelance translators are not only expected to have translation skills, they need to be able to manage projects. For themselves, they need to make their business viable by gaining and retaining work. That means they need to spend more time working and less time running their business.

Project management software empowers you to do this. Time spent on administrative tasks such as generating quotes and invoices, searching for client data, taking stock of job status and deadlines, adds up quickly.

 

Anything that can be automated should be, and project management software can do that for you. It allows you to spend less time managing projects and more time doing what you’re great at.

Advantages.

Let's take a look at the following 4 advantages for using project management software to your advantage:

Consistency

Consistency is key when working as a freelancer. It helps you guard your professional reputation as an organised, reliable, proficient service provider.

 

Clients need reliable vendors, and it’s up to you to prove it. Not only does project management software help you manage your time better, automatically generated documents will look professional, have consistent formatting and save you time manually saving records.

Automation

Automating tasks also reduces the risk of human errors. Project management software can store emails from your clients, make task lists, set deadlines and review past projects. 

 

Never be caught out searching for contact details, old documents or emails again. It’s all in one place you can log on to wherever you are. You can store all your records, from client information and communication, source materials, works in progress, quotes and invoices, in one place.

 

You’ll reap the benefits of this at tax time, and when managing client relationships.

Work on the go

Project management software empowers you to work on the go. No matter where you’re working, you can take your projects with you. All you need is an internet connection. Leave the rest at home. 

 

In this global era and working in an industry built on cross-cultural interactions, you must be mobile. As a freelancer, it allows you to enjoy the benefits and flexibility of working for yourself.

 

For your clients, time is of the essence. With the rise of automated translation and 24/7, global communication, your customers want translation services delivered faster than ever. With project management software, you won’t waste their time with clunky manual processes and simple human errors. It also allows you to respond quicker, track progress and payments and keep accurate records.

Gain time

If it's not obvious by now, you'll know that the biggest advantage to cloud-based project management software like Fred is in gaining back time you would otherwise be using for administration tasks.
