Job description:

Blue Whale Global Media are running a translation project at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, which is taking place in France this summer from 7 June to 7 July.

We are looking for talented freelance translators to join our team for the tournament to cover the following languages:

- English
- Spanish
- French
- Japanese
- Korean
- Thai
- Portuguese (Brazilian)
- Chinese
- German
- Italian
- Dutch
- Norwegian
- Swedish

The scope of the project is to translate interviews of players and coaches during the tournament (match previews, interviews the day before games, post-match interviews). We assign work through Skype and use an online Google Doc system where translators and proofreaders can work remotely and simultaneously on a file to ensure speedy and accurate translations.

A shift system will be in operation and at any one time we will need 2/3 translators of each language online to provide cover, so you can imagine the workload we're expecting. We do allow our collaborators a certain degree of flexibility in choosing their working hours.

The group stages of the tournament are expected to be the busiest time - 7-20 June - but depending on the various teams' performances, the workload could continue all the way to the final on 7 July! Needless to say, we'll be operating on Central European Time, but as long as you have a reliable Internet connection and a willing attitude, this is a job that can be done anywhere in the world!

Naturally, a high standard among our translators is expected and all our candidates will be required to pass a test stage as well. We are also recruiting native English proofreaders as well, as every job requires proofreading for accuracy and quality control.

I'd be happy to discuss the project further - including rates, timings, how the work is organised etc.- with anyone who's interested.

So, would you be interested in joining our translation team for this exciting opportunity?

If so, please fill out the Registration Form below and let us know ASAP when you've done so by emailing [HIDDEN] so we can proceed with the short language test:


Best wishes,
