Sentai Filmworks, one of North America’s largest distributors of Japanese entertainment media, is seeking translators to work in an at-home, freelance capacity.
Translation will consist of audiovisual media (animation, live-action films) and associated materials such as DVD inserts, credits, and ad copy.
Translations will primarily be from Japanese to English, requiring advanced knowledge of Japanese language and (pop) culture as well as native- or near-native level English. The ideal applicant will be able to render translations that are accurate while retaining the "voice" of the source material. Assignments are on a per-project basis, generally consisting of seasons of 12-13 episodes.
Applicants should be comfortable working with occasional mature themes and content. Prior experience with visual/entertainment media translation is a plus but not required.
