Are you looking for a fun localisation project for one of the world's most influential web development company?

To kick off this project of around 1.2 million words we are organizing a fun 4 day workshop in Tokyo. During the workshop days, the client will train you in not only the technical aspects (translations will be done in Smartling), but also on tonality, tone-of-voice and of course the general content that you will translate.
For the fine print, we of course provide you with a daily renumeration of 100 Euros to attend the workshop and take care that you will not be hungry or thirsty at any point!

The content to translate contains website texts of different industries so whatever your speciality is, you will be able to apply it directly to the project and use your individual skills in create text that is appealing to the readers.

An overview of the project:
Language pair: English - Japanese
Start of the project: 7th of May
Training dates: 7-10th of May
Location of the training: Tokyo (near Shibuya, Aoyama, Omotesando station)
Tool: Smartling
