That’s not all you need, though. The three positions listed are for a Brazilian, Russian and Arabic tester, so you will need to be fluent in more than one language.

If you can speak Portuguese, Russian or Arabic as well as English, then what are you waiting for?

The job role includes making sure the audio and text in a video game is correct.

A good level of knowledge for the required language (grammar, spelling and punctuation) are all key skills, along with having good attention to detail.

Successful candidates will be required to complete a mandatory translation test. Then the fun begins.

The hours are 37.5 hours per week, working 9am to 5:30pm from Monday to Friday.
