Q&A session: get to know your dedicated PM (part 2)

Professional Translations has dedicated its expertise and resources so that clients around the world can benefit from the greatest experience when it comes to a long term partnership with a specialized language provider.

We strive for the best results in terms of overall collaboration, assistance throughout an ongoing translation project and interesting benefits specially created for our most loyal clients.

We believe that sharing key values and similar vision of our companies can get us to experiencing the best outcome. Professionalism, quality translations and a good balance between the services that we provide and the afferent rates represent the key ingredients of a worthy translation agency.

Aside from these key ingredients – Professional Translations strongly believes that the people from within the company are the true pillars and foundation. Without them – little things would be possible. This is why – today – we’ve thought that you would be interested in getting to know a little better the people from within the company, the Project Managers with whom you have developed a wonderful and lucrative collaboration.

As last week you got to know your dedicated Senior Project Manager – Georgiana Barb, today you will have the opportunity to get to know our Project Manager – Ramona Szime.

12032003_10153103047530308_4553233863007136668_nQ: Tell us a few things about yourself (a brief introduction of yourself as a person – what you like, what you enjoy doing in your free time, music, food …enough so that your clients can get to know you a little better).

A: I’m married, almost 30 and I’m a proud mommy of an almost 4 year old girl. That would almost sum it up, but in addition I like writing articles, I like baking and cooking all kinds of pasta and I’m obsessed with accents of American descent. I will never get tired of Greece and fashion. Reading has become a luxury since my daughter was born – but, I still enjoy it when I have some spare time.

Q: What does being a part of the Professional Translations’ team – most specifically being a PM within this company – mean to you?

A: Being a part of this wonderful family for the past 2 years – I’ve learnt that there is the possibility of getting up in the morning from Monday through Friday and not feeling I should call in sick. I love everything about PT. I love everything about my job and I feel I belong here.

Q: What were your expectations about 2 years ago when you were hired as a PM?

A: My expectations were not that high about two years ago – as I was finishing my maternity leave period and I just hoped and prayed I’d get a decent job where I could still rediscover myself – professionally. My expectations were deceived, because it only took one interview and I felt like I was on the right path. J

Q: What is your favorite part about being a PM?

A: I love the everyday challenges this job entitles. I love establishing a long term relationship with new clients which are not to keen about outsourcing their translations. Like I said, I love many things about my job, so I wouldn’t be able to surround myself with only one favorite part. J

Q: What can your clients (old and new) expect from a Project Manager from Professional Translations?

A: At the end of the day I can only say that I strive to make a difference. I strive for deceiving overall (negative) expectations and once we get to talk it’s really up to my skills to convince you that you’ve come to the right place.

Q: Tell us a little bit about the relationship with your clients. (your ongoing collaboration for the past 2 years)

A: I like to think that respect and transparency are the things that characterize the relationship I have managed to establish with my clients. Once you have grounded these two ingredients – the rest just follows.

Q: Was there any particular situation in which you were the most proud of yourself, of your work and which is worth mentioning?

A: My most rewarding days are those in which I have managed to convert a lead or a potential client into a long term partner. Sometimes it’s hard and tricky and it implies that you really know what you’re doing, but at the end of the day it’s a great feeling knowing that such an important client has seen very clearly the picture you were trying to sell.

Q: Almost 2 years have past… how is Ramona Szime, the Project Manager, doing in comparison to Ramona Szime which first got hired?

A: I’ve learnt over the past two years that I am capable of many things. I’ve discovered some abilities that I had no idea were a part of me. This is why it’s been such a fun ride… I’ve learnt a lot of things and grown as an individual. It’s the most rewarding feeling.
