The role
We are looking for native speakers to collaborate with us as freelancers. You will be responsible for post-editing, translating and proofreading product descriptions to make them available to Amazon customers in their local language. You will mostly focus on post-editing projects. Using only our online web editor, you will ensure that human and machine-generated translations meet Amazon's specific style guides and internal standards for product detail pages.

Amazon is currently looking for talented and highly motivated linguists to collaborate with us as post-editors/translators in any language pairs. The most wanted language pairs at this time are the following: DE-CHINESE SIMPLIFIED MANDARIN, DE-PENINSULAR SPANISH, DE- FRENCH, DE-ITALIAN, DE-BRITISH ENGLISH, US-HEBREW, US-KOREAN, US-TRADITIONAL CHINESE and IT-GERMAN.

Please note that if your language pair is not listed above, do not hesitate to apply anyway, specifying which language you can post-edit/translate. We will keep your application in our database and contact you in case your languages are needed in the future.

• Native speaker of one of our target languages.
• You are not required to have a CAT tool as we will provide you with our online web editor.
• Stable Internet connection needed to perform work online.
• Ideal capacity: between 2,500 and 18,000 words per week.
• Attention to detail.
• Please note that following your application, you will be required to successfully complete a translation and post-editing test (about 500 words).

The rate we pay is calculated on a project-by-project basis.

So what are you waiting for? Put your language skills into action and start freelancing for Amazon today! [HIDDEN]
