Rethinking the role of the localization project manager
Many corporations do not understand the relationships and dependencies between localization, internationalization, and globalization. This state of affairs presents challenges and opportunities for localization project managers (LPMs). LPMs are well positioned to improve the integration of localization, internationalization, and globalization, enhancing their career prospects in the process, but doing so requires knowledge and skills that fall outside project management per se and that have not traditionally been addressed by translation, project management or business training programs or academic curricula. This chapter addresses this gap by examining knowledge and skills that LPMs need and strategies they can employ to improve the integration of localization, internationalization, and globalization and lead the corporation closer to global maturity.
