- Wanted: English-speaking translators/copywriters (Übersetzer/Texter)
Posted by : ALMOZAWID.com Donnerstag, 15. Mai 2014
We are looking for new recruits (junior translators/copywriters) for our office in Ludwigsburg near Stuttgart. You must be a native speaker of English, and should have one or two years’ experience of German-to-English translating and/or writing. Consideration will also be given to applicants with greater experience seeking appointment as senior translators/copywriters. Starting date and salary subject to negotiation.
We are not your run-of-the-mill, churn-it-out translation “factory”. Our focus is squarely on quality and not quantity. And we write as often as we translate. We believe in teamwork, research, and close collaboration with our clients. We serve ad agencies, marketing professionals and C-level executives.The right candidates are often translators who are looking for greater variety and new challenges – people who are thirsty for knowledge, keen to develop and enthusiastic about language.
Experienced or not, you face a steep learning curve, especially in the first year. But we offer plenty in return: unparalleled opportunities to grow, generous bonuses for good results, a willingness to accommodate personal wishes, great coffee, and a much-used and -abused foosball table.
We will get a warm feeling inside if you:
- Have degree-level or equivalent German
- Are proactive and communicative
- Have a way with words
- Love to learn
Your application will head to the bin if you:
- Are not a genuine native speaker of English
- Are not cut out for teamwork and prefer freelance solitude
- Cannot get your head around technology and business
- React badly to constructive criticism
Money should not be your main motivation, but if you want to earn well, you can. The primary rewards come in the shape of a unique mix of assignments, close contact with colleagues and clients, and a relaxed if demanding working atmosphere. And if you are ambitious, there really are no limits to where you could go.
Please apply to email@example.com – we’d like to see a CV, and a covering letter (in English!). Please avoid the usual bland phrases, and really show us what makes you tick. Sample translations welcome but not mandatory. No snail mail, please.
