DWL is hiring!

We are looking for an experienced Project Manager to provide extra support for a busy translation service provider specialising in the life sciences.

Job description:

As a Project Manager at DWL you will:

  • Operate within DWL’s quality management system and ISO 9001 certification.
  • Handle key accounts as part of the project management team.
  • Be responsible for quotations, order handling and quality control of the translations.
  • Be working on projects in the medical / pharmaceutical field, including regulatory projects for submission to the European Medicines Agency (involving up to 24 languages).
  • Set up and process all compatible translation projects in memoQ.
  • Be responsible for the final MS-Word processing of the translations to ensure that they respect either the original format or the standard requested by the client.
  • When required, work paid overtime (evenings, occasional weekends).



  • We are looking for a committed and dynamic person with excellent communication skills and strong knowledge of both spoken and written English and project management experience of ideally 2 years or more.
  • Languages: knowledge of at least 2 European languages other than English is essential, and some understanding of the nature of scientific publications and documents, particularly regulatory/pharmaceutical/medical documentation, is a bonus.
  • Regulatory: familiarity with EMA templates and standard terminology for this type of documentation would be ideal but is not essential.
  • Accuracy: accurate and thorough quality control is essential to ensure that all the material delivered to clients complies with DWL quality standards.
  • IT: computer literacy and strong MS-Word processing skills are essential as the project management occasionally requires the preparation/finalisation of layout/format for the translated documents. Must be experienced in working with a CAT tool (preferably memoQ).
  • Desirable: flexibility and positive thinking to work in a small busy team always striving to find creative solutions to optimise client and translator satisfaction whilst working in an enjoyable environment.
