Freelance Linguistic Tester - Tri-State area only!

 

With 20+ million members across 180 countries, Meetup is witnessing explosive growth! We are looking for experienced native-tongue linguistic testers in the following languages: French (France), German (Germany), Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish (International). 

To apply, you must be a native level speaker and have attended school in the target language. You must also live in the Tri-State area, as you will be occasionally asked to conduct testing onsite. Your primary responsibility as a freelance linguistic tester will be to proofread and edit content already localized to your native language. You must be extremely detail-oriented and make sure you catch any errors in the content, such as: grammar, typos, syntax, punctuation, capitalization, political incorrectness, inconsistencies, and extra spaces between words or characters. You will sometimes be translating content from English to your native language. Occasionally, you will be checking UIs for functional issues. 

To apply, please send us your cover note and resume to translations@meetup.com.

 

Ideally, you'll possess:

  • Previous experience with localization testing
  • Expert writing, editing, and proofreading skills with superior attention to detail
  • Experience using Transifex
  • A strong user of iOS and/or Android based products
  • The ability to multitask, work efficiently under pressure, and meet deadlines
  • A passion for the power of words to craft great experiences and foster community
  • A smartphone (if not, the availability to conduct the testing in-house at our office in NYC)

 

Bonus points:

  • You've used Meetup in the past and/or are actively involved in a local community
  • You've worked in an experimentation-centric culture that tests copy variations
  • You care about words, tone, idioms, and expressions and their ability to accurately convey and capture the spirit of local community!

 

Initially, our linguistic testing needs are between 5-10 hours per month. If this sounds like an exciting freelance role, send us your cover note and resume to translations@meetup.com. Also, if you have translation samples or links to your work, we'd love to see them!
