Localisation Specialist (1 year contract) – Japanese to Spanish

This company needs little introduction…

With an empire that spans movies, video games, animated TV shows, board games and a wide-spread TCG, you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who hasn't interacted with Pokémon in some way, shape or form over the last 20 years.

The Pokémon Company are now looking for a Localisation Specialist to translate everything necessary for the localisation of their video games, including in-game text, manuals and strategy guides. You'll join the team on a yearlong contract in their London-based office, where your responsibilities will also include a number of side tasks where they should arise, including website translation. You'll ensure that The Pokémon Company's high standards are held at all times, and be prepared to translate from English at times if required.

You'll reap the benefits of working from The Pokémon Company's brand new modern London-based Chiswick Park office. With stunning scenery, plenty of greenery and a lake, the park is a welcomed departure from the hustle and bustle that you might associate with working in London. Not only this, but you'll enjoy year round events put on for employees, and that's not to mention all the Pokémon freebies!

Have you got the skills I'm looking for?

  • Experience as a professional translator
  •  Good written and oral communication skills in both Japanese and English
  •  Native level Spanish and creative writing style

Icing on the cake

  • Previous experience in the gaming industry is a strong plus.
  • Knowledge of translation memory software, in particular Trados, is a plus
