"XTRF — a savior for localization project managers"

What do you like best?

XTRF is a highly-specialized enterprise-class software solution specially designed for localization projects, which typically include translation, editing and proofreading work, etc., required by clients and completed by vendors. It integrates functions like client and vendor data management, quote request and confirmation, work assignment, payment arrangements, timeline management and file delivery.

What do you dislike?

The automation of low-ended jobs also indicates that project managers who can only do these will be obsoleted. And the same applies to the ones who are not capable of taking advantage of technological advancement. In this sense, XTRF is a filter.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Without a doubt, for localization project managers who struggled in daily tasks related to project administration, XTRF is a powerful tool, allowing them to spend more time on more complex work that asks for advanced people skills that go beyond machine’s limits. In this sense, the tool is a savior.

For instance, in the past, it took a project manager a great deal of time to transfer the files from upper stream to lower stream. Translated files will be sent to the manager’s email from the translators, and then be forwarded by the manager to the editor’s inbox. The dry process not only requires dull but vital conformation, but also breakdowns from time to time when the email server is unstable. In contrast, XTRF links all the vendors to the platform based on the workflow, meaning that once the translators have uploaded their finished works, they will appear in the editor’s task list right away. This amazing automation has freed project managers from being a file transferor, thus letting them concentrate on people work such as building relationships with clients.

"A decent translation project management platform"

What do you like best?

XTRF is yet another translation project management platform that seems to be adopted by more and more translation companies. It is a decent way to issue purchase orders and invoices. The jobs themselves are emailed between translators and project managers, though. I also like that the translator can self-report a lot of information such as skills, software, and vacation days; this probably makes things convenient for the project managers too. It's also helpful for the translator that all past invoices can be stored in one place, with payment statuses transparent to both sides.

What do you dislike?

I am not aware of any company that actually uses the "Job Offers" page, and so I don't think this section is all that useful. Project integration might also be a good thing, depending on how well translators and project managers communicate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As long as instructions are clearly given to translators in the beginning, the system is pretty intuitive and easy to integrate into workflow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've noticed companies starting to use this system to get beyond the manual creation of purchase orders, so it seems that the automation of this part makes the project management side more efficient.
