Proofreader with Korean

Patent Translation & Filing | Chalfont St Peter, England | Full-time

Our Patent Translation & Filing division has an immediate vacancy for a Proofreader with Korean language skills and native-level English. As part of an international team of approximately sixty checkers, your work will involve sentence-by-sentence checking of translations prepared by in-house and external technical staff. You will be expected to proofread documents against the originals (these will normally be from foreign languages translated into English) and to edit the English version where necessary. Where original texts are in a language you have prior knowledge of, you will be expected to perform a word-by-word check.

Applicants must be educated to degree level and have excellent Korean language skills – additional Japanese would be an advantage. Applicants must also have well-developed critical faculties and good powers of concentration.

The starting salary is £22,500 per annum. Benefits include 22 days annual leave (+ bank holidays), 3% contributory pension scheme, private medical insurance, life assurance, annual season ticket loans, discounted gym membership, a Cycle2Work scheme, and a free shuttle bus to/from Gerrards Cross train station.
