  • Support with maintaining high quality translation memories
  • Transcreate various Traditional Chinese creative copy, including editorials, emails, promotions, and other marketing content
  • Be a quality guardian for our Traditional Chinese tone of voice and an expert on particular fashion brands and categories
  • Establish routines and standards with the team, including reporting, feedback and other quality checks.

Who You Are:

  • Native proficiency in Traditional Chinese (Taiwan or Hong Kong)
  • Fluency in English is a must
  • Degree in Chinese, Applied Linguistics, Translation and/or equivalent experiences
  • Experience in working with an in-house CMS (Content Management System) CAT (computer-aided-translation) tools
  • Experience in doing large volumes of translations in the fashion field
  • Experience in managing language specific style guides and glossaries
  • Past experience in other e-commerce platforms are nice to have
  • Localization Project Management experience would be a plus.
