Translator Japanese – UK English (m/f)
Nintendo of Europe is looking for UK English speakers with an excellent knowledge of the Japanese language to take up full-time positions within our software localisation team based in Frankfurt.

Members of the team are primarily responsible for the translation, editing and localisation of Japanese software titles (as well as associated manuals and other documentation) into UK English. The role also includes the editing and localisation of US English text for the UK market. As UK English text is frequently used as the source language for translation into other European languages, teamwork and flexibility are essential.

In addition to proficiency in Japanese, candidates should have a degree in Japanese or translation (or previous experience in a similar role), thorough knowledge of English style and grammar, and general computer proficiency (including familiarity with Microsoft Office). Personal interest in video games is desirable but not essential. Knowledge of German is not required, as office business is conducted entirely in English.

Applications should include a CV and cover letter, both in English.

A multi-faceted role within a team of talented colleagues awaits the successful applicant. We look forward to receiving your application.
