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:

  • Handle key accounts as part of the project management team.

  • Set up and process compatible translation projects in memoQ.
  • Be responsible for the final MS-Word processing of the translations to ensure that they respect the standard requested by the client.

  • We are seeking 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.
