Before starting this internship, lecturers at my university often spoke about the pressures and stresses of project management. This week, I finally got to see what they were talking about!
Finding a translator in a completely different time zone who is willing to translate an urgent project ASAP is not an easy task. Especially when the whole country that the translators are based in, is fast asleep and will be waking up when the whole of the UK is fast asleep!
Given that everything worked out in the end, I may be being a teensy bit dramatic, however it did teach me that no matter how organised you are as a PM, you’ll always get curveballs and unexpected surprises thrown at you. I suppose that’s what keeps the job exciting!
I’m still loving my time at Lingua Translations and I’m so grateful to have real experience working for such an exciting agency!
I can’t wait to see what next week brings.
