Depending on where the protein will end up, it will either be made by ribosomes in the cytoplasm (proteins that are to remain soluble in the cell) or ribosomes docked on the endoplasmic reticulum (proteins that will be secreted out of the cell, incorporated into the plasma membrane, proteins that will end up in the endoplasmic reticulum and/or Golgi complex).
