People often ask me what is the career path for a manager in the globalization industry. While it is not always a linear trajectory, there are often three levels on the client side. L10n project managers who manage projects and not people. They may move to L10n Program managers that manage L10n project managers. The next step is managing the program managers and overseeing the globalization budget. This person may have the title of Director or VP of Globalization. The roles for client and vendor differ.
