What is project management or PM? Let’s take Overcook 2 as an example. In this game, you have to split your roles if you want to succeed as a team. Somebody has to chop the ingredients, somebody has to do the cooking, somebody has to put everything on a plate and deliver it, and somebody has to do the dishes, right? If you are that one person who is actually organizing everything and telling everyone what to do and how they should move around, you’re in a way a project manager, or that’s what project management is about.

Now when it comes to localization, instead of chopping ingredients or cooking stuff, we actually want to provide localization or translate something that the clients want from us, right? So PMs, they distribute work to translators or reviewers, or they work with engineers or with testers in order to get the project done and successfully deliver it, just like you deliver food in Overcook 2.
