Job Description

Seeking Japanese/English Simultaneous Interpreter Full-Time Contract

Full-time, Contract

Experienced Japanese/English Simultaneous Interpreter (both directions: Japanese to English and English to Japanese) (college degree and at least 5 years of interpretation experience)

Requirement: Provide accurate simultaneous interpretation (equipment provided) for meetings during any hours required by COMPANY and accurately and quickly translate written documents as needed.

As an interpreter dispatched by your agency to work at an automotive company; it is critical that both your Japanese and English be smooth and easy to understand. You will likely be assigned to either morning shift or evening shift, which will almost always mean that you will do one or two videoconference for about 2 to 3 hours by yourself each morning or night.

Your hours will likely be irregular in order to meet the demands of company users. That means some days will be short and some will be long. For most weeks, though, the goal will be to keep you from going over 40 hours for the whole week. While travel is usually not common, there may be times when you will need to visit suppliers, etc.

For most meetings during the day, you will be combined with another interpreter. As such, you will need to be a good team player in working with whoever you are paired with. However, when it is very busy, you might have to interpret on your own for long periods of time.

For the above reasons and more, this job requires that you have a high level of stamina, focus and energy.

If qualified, email a WORD version copy of your resume and call Peggy at 774-210-4108 to discuss.
