Customized Trados and Project Management training at Cillero & De Motta in Zaragoza
A great number of translation agencies seek Qabiria's help when having to face an increased volume of work. As the translation market is growing, companies are hiring new staff, with the consequent need to bring them up to speed with management procedures and work tools.
This happens especially in rapidly expanding companies like Cillero & De Motta, a translation agency based in Zaragoza, Spain. Qabiria provided them with a customized solution to their training needs, with a full package including a SDL Trados course and a project management course. These two separate but interrelated courses were taught by Marco and Sergio at the company's Headquarters in Calle San Miguel, Zaragoza. The six attendees were split into two groups.
Trainees included both new recruits and experienced staff. Qabiria tailored the training courses in order to bring the whole staff at the same level of expertise. On the one hand some practical experience was needed to strengthen theoretical knowledge; on the other hand the new concepts deriving from practice entailed more specialist knowledge.
After 5 training sessions held between September and November 2008, Cillero & De Motta's personnel acquired a thorough understanding of project management. Furthermore, they learnt how to make the most out of SDL Trados, from the simple recurring operations with translation memories, to the complex procedures requiring OCR, filters or Perfect Match.
