Episode Transcript

Like me, many people in small-size companies have begun working as a vendor manager (VM) in recent years. In the past, this role was often seen as a sort of side-position, a function that came to replace or integrate something else, and that perfectly suited a part-time position. However, after several years as a VM, I totally agree with one of the first messages that Cisneros aims to spread with her book: Vendor management is actually a crucial function for every translation company.
