French Interpreter

Global Press is hiring a French Interpreter to interpret conversations between English-speaking editors at our D.C. headquarters and local, French-speaking reporters at bureaus around the world. Global Press has reporters based in French-speaking communities in Haiti and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Interpreters are part of our Global Press Accuracy Network. Interpreters are paid in 30-minute increments and are typically given a minimum of 24 hours notice for any interpretation needs. GPAN members specify the amount of work they are looking for, and work closely with Global Press’ assignment editor, lead editors and reporters. All GPAN work can be done remotely. GPAN members based in Washington D.C. or a Global Press bureau location are welcome (and encouraged!) to work with the local team.
