CURRENT GPAN OPENINGS
Tamil to English Translator
We’re hiring a Tamil-English Translator!
Global Press is recruiting freelance Tamil to English translators to join the Global Press Accuracy Network. Global Press Journal reporters work in the least-covered parts of the world and speak dozens of languages. We currently publish in five languages and syndicate our news to dozens of countries. We’re recruiting expert translators to serve our local language audiences. We consider native language and fluency language to be different, and recruit positions accordingly.
All candidates for this role must be native English speakers with fluency in Tamil and must have 1+ years of professional translation experience in journalism.
Translators are part of the Global Press Accuracy Network. GPAN members are paid per piece and are typically given 24-48 hour deadlines. GPAN members specify the amount of work they are looking for and work closely with Global Press’ assignment editor, lead editors and reporters during the editorial process. Global Press hires translators to translate into their native language. For this role, translators will only be asked to translate from Tamil to English. All GPAN work can be done remotely.
