It seems that since my post in March, a job opportunity has arisen again, for the Head of Translation Services at the ratings agency Standard & Poor’s (S&P) Global Platts, to lead and manage their translation unit.
“The incumbent makes sure daily, weekly, fortnightly and monthly publications are accurately translated into Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, German and Chinese, and sent out in a timely manner. For this he/she manages and supervises the Spanish and Brazilian Lead Translators and a team of freelance translators.
The Head of Translation Services also makes sure all translation needs of the Content group, as well as Marketing and other departments are covered, e.g. special reports, mailshots, web pages, brochures, conference material etc. For this he/she works with in-house translators as well as external language service providers (translation agencies, freelancers).
The Head of Translation Services leads the recruitment of freelance and in-house translators and the selection of language service providers as and when required.”
The location is stated as London, UK. To find out more, see the Standard & Poors website here.
