In November 2000, a large German translation agency recruited him to bring his wide experience to the roles of project manager and supervisor of the German language department. Here he gained extensive knowledge of the latest translation memory tools (CAT-Tools) and acquired valuable experience in managing translation projects according to DIN standards.
