Job description:

Hello, everyone:

We're about to begin a large EN>DE subtitling project, where we're subtitling all the content for an upcoming television channel: interview shows, documentaries, movies, short films, trailers...

This client demands a very high-quality job, so the only requirement is to use WinCAPS, a professional software (there's the option for inexpensive monthly licenses). You can start by working with the 7-day trial version and then we an offer a 25% discount code. The 1-month license would then go down to USD $40. We have to meet a minimum of 40-50 hours weekly and we expect this project to extend for several months, so there are tons of work assured.

We'll be getting a new batch of videos each week and the deadline is always 6 days from receving the material. Excelent translation and timing quality is imperative, as well as respecting the deadlines.

It's also necessary to pass a small 3-minute subtitling test with WinCAPS.

*We are only taking translators who have credited experience in subtitling.

If you are interested or have any questions, you can email us to the address listed in this announcement.

We want to expand our team. We get projects regularly, and this could lead to many other large projects like this one in the near future.

Volume: 750 hours
