    Korean and Japanese translator recruitment

    Translators are responsible for bringing WeHeartIU members the latest news and interviews, as well as helping them to understand IU's many TV appearances through translated video. And of course, they also translate IU's fancafe and me2day posts, and tweets by her staff or other Korean celebrities.

    Translators must:

    • Be fluent in both written and spoken Korean or Japanese as we will ask you to work on both articles and videos.
    • Have a high standard of written English.
    • Be regularly active and available to translate rapidly and at short notice (especially for fancafe/me2day posts and news articles).
    • Be able to navigate Korean news portal and community sites to find the latest IU updates (we can recommended good sources).

    To apply for this role, please copy/paste and complete the form below.

    Please note that we will only contact candidates that we think are suitable, and you will be tested for this role. If you're thinking of using Google Translate, don't waste your time, we're not stupid. :p

    If you have any questions please do not post them here, but ask them in this thread instead.
