Wise (formerly TransferWise) was founded in 2011 with a clear mission — money without borders — instant, convenient, fair, and eventually free.  We built a money transfer product used by millions of people and businesses to move money around the world.

In 2018 we launched our multi-currency account and debit card, the first step on our road towards fixing international banking. Now we offer banking features for 28 countries, balances for 50+ currencies, a card to travel the world, multi-currency direct debits and other revolutionary features, and so in 2021 we rebranded to Wise to reflect the fact that now we’re so much more than transfers.

We’re looking for a Spanish speaking Localisation Specialist to join our growing localisation team.

  • The localisation team wants to make sure that more countries hear about Wise’s mission.
  • A great product is something people can understand — we want something easy to use, accessible and that speaks to our customers in their language.
  • It’s a challenging and exciting role where you’ll be translating content and coming up with new ways of reaching our customers.

What about the role?

The role can be based in our Tallinn, Budapest or London Office (we can not offer remote working). You will work closely with the localisation coordination team and other translators based in our offices around the world.

You need to have a passion for words and experience in translation. You should be comfortable translating finance and marketing content.

At Wise, we want to make money move across borders easy and eventually free. Our team does this with words — but we still have work to do.

This role will give you the opportunity to

  • Work with product managers, developers, and localisation managers to help solve problems
  • Engage in creative processes and help Wise find its voice in Spanish
  • Research the local market and find ways for Wise to stand out

Your mission

  • Translate and proofread materials from English to Spanish maintaining the correct meaning and context, and localising it where appropriate
  • Spot and highlight internationalisation copy, or translation issues
  • Give feedback to marketers, product owners, and other stakeholders
  • Achieve a consistent tone of voice—everywhere from web pages to customer support emails
  • Identify and address growth opportunities with Spanish-speaking audiences
  • Establish and maintain language glossary, guidelines and terminology for other language stakeholders and teams, and keep it accessible

A bit about you

  • You fluently speak, write, and comprehend English at a high level.
  • You can use Spanish flexibly and effectively at a professional level in product, marketing, and support materials
  • You can work to tight deadlines, and still deliver accurate and natural translations
  • You’re familiar with translation management systems and quality reviews, and you’re able to quickly get comfortable with new workflows
  • You’re great with words and you display close attention to detail.
  • You have an analytical mind, and can express it constructively in order to reach what’s best for customers
  • You can manage time productively and meet performance targets

Some extra skills that would be awesome

  • You’re familiar with translation workflows and CAT tools
  • You have experience in translating marketing related content
  • You’re a certified translator
