Midsize cruise travel company needs an experienced translator for ongoing work updating our English site to French. The site has mostly been translated, but as we add programs we will need ongoing assistance with the following:
- New cruise and resort programs
- Revised terms and conditions
- Assist with promotional materials
- Advertising content
Site content needs to be engaging to users and follow cultural sensitivities. English-specific phrases and idioms must be converted and not simply translated.
We specialize in travel for the gay and lesbian marketplace, so some cultural knowledge of the market would be helpful as well.
The contractor should be:
1. Fluent in French and English and understand local cultural differences
2. Be familiar with website content best practices
3. Have a basic understanding of travel language and descriptions
The work is ongoing and will be provided on an as-needed basis.
How to apply
To apply, please respond with your rate per 1000 words of English in addition to the cover letter.
In the cover letter, please highlight other translation jobs you’ve undertaken and your experience in the travel or related industries.
