Why couldn’t you start your business as a small translation agency and make it profitable? Even small teams with a few members can change the world (just think about how Apple started). At Babelprojekt we also thought of small businesses, so we optimized our web-based translation management software also for their needs – and we’re still developing.
There are a lot of advantages of using Babelprojekt to manage your translation projects or any project related to multilingual tasks. Also if there are just a few translators and proofreaders working in your team. So if you have a small business, let’s be honest and start with a very important aspect: we are cheap. Which is good for you. But we have even better news for you: we are still developing our product to personalize it for your very needs. Not that you cannot use it from this moment on – all of its functions are working perfectly. Still, we must face the fact that we simply cannot think of everything a translation business might need. Furthermore, business needs are changing all the time (like most of the things in the world), and we have to have up to date infos and build a flexible product that can react adequately to the challanges of new working routines or bigger (all smaller!) needs.
There is one thing we certainly know about small translation agencies: they have to be very careful with their time, therefore they need a reliable time management system. Sure you can follow up the projects and the tasks within a project in a calendar or in an excel file, but, as we mentioned in one of our previous blogposts, we have a better idea. Why don’t you use just one product for all your tasks within the company, where you can build your own database of clients, translators and proofreaders, store your documents, up- and download them easily, and follow up precisely the deadlines of each project, forecast your needs of resources, make financial reports and so on. Babelprojekt includes all these functions. (Click here how you can save time and increase work quality just by taking advantage of our workflow management system based on the four eyes principle.)
If you don’t want your time to be wasted and want your business to grow, plus you would be happy if the system would reflect your needs, here’s the deal. Enjoy the free trial period of Babelprojekt (you can start it with just with a few clicks), and reach out to us anytime on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a better idea than what we had. Or, if you want the system to suit more your needs than it does at the moment, we can even build in CAT-tools according to your feedbacks. Why don’t you give us one?3
