[Dec 05, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA, US] – At 1-StopAsia, we would like to take our time and share the success story of one of our colleagues with you. This time it’s about Ian Shin, General Manager of our office in the United States.
Ian, who’s been involved in the translation industry for a long time at this point, has taken the initiative to share some of his experiences by writing an article for the annual edition of The Elia Handbook for Smart PMs Volume 4. For those who aren’t familiar with the organization, Elia is one of the leading non-profit associations in the translation industry.
Ian’s article, titled “Project Manager — The Connector”, has been listed among the most helpful ones that have been submitted. The Elia Handbook for Smart PMs is being issued for the 4th time, and it’s gradually grown into one of the handiest and most educational tools in the industry. It’s managed that by compiling some of the collective experience and know-how of the world’s leading localization Project Managers into a single book.
Project Management is one of the evergreen, consistently hot topics that companies and professionals always strive to share something exclusive on, in a bid to stand out from the crowd. This is the reason we feel proud that the article from one of our employees has been chosen to be added in this year’s edition.
His article showcases the complexity of being a Project Manager, along with the different types of personalities that he’s managed to spot in the profession. It also leads us through the pain points of clients and the issues they have to deal with on a daily basis.
We asked Ian how he feels about his article being included in this year’s edition of the Handbook, and he says that: “Sharing experience and knowledge with the people that we work with on a daily basis is both rewarding and intimidating at the same time. They know as much as you do, and the information you decide to share should be from a very personal and exclusive experience. This makes it special and difficult to obtain. I’m glad that my personal experience is valuable enough to be shared with others, and would like to extend a big thanks to Elia for giving us the opportunity to do that.”
All we want to do is acknowledge our colleague Ian’s success, and say “We are proud of you and we thank you for the effort that you’ve put in!”. We hope you’ll continue to be the “Connector” between all of our teams around the world.
