  • Strong organizational and multitasking skills and the ability to handle pressure when delivering to tight deadlines
  • Willingness to share their expertise to promote the growth of the team
  • Friendly and credible personality who inspires trust in clients and partners
  • Flexibility and a positive ‘can‐do’ approach
What it is like to work on our APAC Translation Team:

  • You will work as a part of an international team
  • Your colleagues are industry experts with significant experience in their fields, which means that you will have a strong support network around you
