I have been looking for a system to track my translation projects and my invoices for a long time and I never found one that was clear, intelligent, and streamlined enough and would work without much messing about, but then I found SDL Trados Business Manager.

We have been using SDL Trados Business Manager for almost a year now and it made our work in the translation agency much easier. Business Manager is practical, easy to use and you can enter there all the data that you need. We especially love that we can have our projects, customers, translators, invoices, quotes, tax reports and analyses all in one place! Our working process would be far more time-consuming and complicated without this program. Business Manager is a perfect solution for any translator or translation agency out there.

I've been using SDL Trados Business Manager for almost two years now and wouldn't think about using anything else. I use it every day for essential tasks such as keeping track of new jobs, deadlines, collaboration with other linguists, invoicing and payments. I love the Dashboard functionality and the overall flexibility of the software. In my opinion, Business Manager is a must-have for the administrative tasks of a translation business.

I’ve been using SDL Trados Business Manager from the very beginning, and have been watching its rapid development with great interest. I had grown tired of my existing business management tool, and was on the lookout for something better. I found it, and am very happy I did. Business Manager has made my admin both easier and more fun
