We often have exciting project for our great clients, so if you want to be contacted when your language pair is needed, please drop your CV and a few words about your strengths. 

Our positions are remote, so you could be based anywhere under the sun. 


Here is how we imagine our ideal candidate: 

  • Transcreator with vast experience in transcreating, proofreading, creative campaigns, copywriting and social media;
  • Transcreator who is based in-country and shares the same location of the target audience (optionally living many years in the target country);
  • Transcreator who has a deep knowledge of the local culture, knows how to convey humor and is aware of language trends;
  • Transcreator with passion for marketing and mother tongue language.

We also need you to be good at:

Brainstorming: Two brainstorming sessions at the beginning and at the end of each request 

Language: must be bold, brave, effective and resonate with audience 

Think phonetically (how the copy sounds), not just in written forms especially for TV adverts.
