This post marks the next installment of our “A Day in the Life” series, where we drop in on some of Argos Multilingual’s most prominent personalities to see what they’re up to. Today’s visit is to Anna Wilk, who manages the Resource department.
Anna Wilk: I was a university graduate looking for an interesting job, and I was lucky enough to get a job at Argos and stay until today. I worked as a project manager (PM) for some years and then moved on to resource work. Those were ancient times – we were tracking projects in Excel, getting client feedback on paper by fax, and some translators would pop into the office to bring translations on floppy disks!
AW: I’m overseeing the resource department’s work, making sure we work towards meeting the goals set for our team, making sure we have the right resources for the work we do and that they fit the budgets set for projects, supporting PMs in daily work, maintaining relationships with our partners, monitoring their quality and trying to get the best pricing offers from them. Basically, anything related to external suppliers who work for Argos.

AW: Well, it’s very difficult to get bored at Argos, as there is always something new and challenging to work on. Right now, our team is expanding the data in the clinical research industry as well as trying to gain more knowledge in natural language understanding in order to serve new projects.
AW: I want to build a fresh and easy to use supplier database with nice functionalities and automation to replace our manual work.
