An exciting opportunity to join the UK’s leading translation firm as our first Emoji Translator.
The successful candidate will join our global network of over 3,000 linguists, with expertise in over 200 languages – as its first dedicated expert in this rapidly evolving form of international communication.
As the UK’s top translation firm, we stay constantly abreast of the latest language trends, in the service of ever-changing client needs – but feel that the accelerating pace of change in this burgeoning area now demands a specialist focus.
Emoji translation is itself an emerging field – but one dominated to date by software, which is often insensitive to the many cultural differences in usage and interpretation. We are therefore seeking an exceptional individual to provide the human touch needed where translation software is inadequate – and to help us become the go-to translation experts in this area.
In the absence of any native speakers, the successful candidate should be able to demonstrate a passion for emojis, combined with cutting-edge knowledge and awareness of areas of confusion and cultural/international differences. A practical test of emoji knowledge/skills may be given.
