Furthermore, you will be dealing with the whole project cycle which means the success of each project is in your hands. You need to show common sense, have a “can do” attitude, enjoy a busy environment and be adept at multi-tasking.

  • Planning, scheduling and monitoring translation and/or transcreation projects
  • Management, sourcing and co-ordination of translators, file engineers and desktop publishing specialists
  • Sourcing suitable translators and other language professionals
  • Proofreading and QA-checking of translations
  • Effective communication with clients, linguists and colleagues to ensure customer satisfaction

  • Educated to degree level (ideally in translation studies or languages in general)
  • Experience from a similar role within the language industry
  • Strong oral and written English skills
  • Excellent computer literacy
  • Linguistic skills with the ability to assess quality and completeness of translations in any language
  • Being able to multi-task, prioritise and stay calm under pressure
  • Taking pride in delivering a high-quality service

It would be a bonus, but not a must, if you have one or more of the following criteria:

  • Previous use of CAT tools, including Trados Studio, XBench, Transit or other applications

What we offer:

  • Career progression possibilities
  • Trainings tailored to your needs
  • Flexi-time
