I'm looking for a German IT translator with creative writing skills for the jobs of a regular client, a remote access software developer. We have been working with this client for 6 years with a dedicated team, but as the volumes increase and sales-focused texts are more and more in demand, we need new members on board.
- IT translator/editor with wide experience in working for IT/telco companies, translating and adapting customer-focused, sales-oriented or marketing text (frequently updated website content, press releases, communication materials). Natural, fluent language for both end-users and a technical audience, sometimes with adaptation of American colloquialisms and cultural references. Occasional transcreation for product launch, rebranding and marketing campaigns, slogans etc. Familiarity with both B2C and B2B IT terminology. Software localization experience also preferred (UI, documentation, FAQs, KB articles).
- CAT familiarity (memoQ, xtm preferred)
- Long term commitment to cover projects that require creative translation/adaptation skills and to extend the capacity of the current team
Last year we had 220+ multilingual projects for this client (6.5 projects per week), most of them involving German as a Tier 1 language. The average project size is 1000 words, but volumes range from 50 to 15,000 words per project. (A total of 1200+ projects over the past 8 years.)
Please send your application with the following content:
CV with details of long-term/big volume localization/marketing projects
Rate offer (word rate for UI and documentation, hourly rate for editing/marketing adaptation)
Stage 1: screening of applications, shortlisting
Stage 2: test translation
Please confirm your availability for a 300-word test translation.
