We are looking for a Contract Translator to provide translation and interpretation from English-Korean and Korean-English.

WHY JOIN THE i18n TEAM?

  • You can deliver a AAA player experience through high quality localization. This requires both a high degree of creativity and the problem solving skills needed to create a streamlined process from localization to linguistic QA.
  • You can help players immerse themselves in the story and game world. You make characters come to life in a game world that is vivid and energetic by using contextualization and creative rewriting to ensure that all in-game text and voice recordings are fun, unique, and easily understood.
  • You can serve as a bridge between content and players by building connections across cross-cultural gaps. Localization goes beyond translation. Through the process of internalization and culturalization it builds bridges between cultures to ensure that all players can connect the game world to the world they live in.
  • You enjoy working on a group project as a helpful team member. The Localization process involves multiple vendors, teams, and processes as well as several special internal and external tools. Through collaboration and clear communication, you can learn how all the pieces of the orchestra come together to make a harmony.

WHAT YOU'LL DO

  • Translate (Korean to English, vice versa) all business emails and game-related documents between Korea and the US office
  • Liaise between the internal teams and HQ to provide a smooth communication process
  • Prioritize the translation tasks by reviewing each product schedule thoroughly
  • Manage outsourcing, scheduling, and logistics as needed

WHAT YOU'LL NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent
  • 2+ years of experience in a translator role
  • Fluent in Korean and English
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Ability to prioritize workflow and time management

Pluses
