Portuguese Translator x 1

If you are an experienced Portuguese translator or speak Portuguese and have previously been involved with the logistics, sales, marketing or accounting industry, then we want you to become part of our Global Translation Team!

You will be working on a range of translation products such as translating our website, eLearning platform, sales and marketing documents, sales videos, presentations, internal documents, product enhancements and support documents. You will be working at the forefront of an expanding industry empowering our customers and expanding our global reach.

You are fluent in both Portuguese and English. Technical experience translating logistics software is preferred, since it will be beneficial for this role. It is preferred that you have existing knowledge of CargoWise One, but not essential.

I meet all (or most) of the following requirements:

  • I am a professional translator
  • I have previously worked within a freight forwarder or other logistics company
  • I have worked with a Freight Forwarding software package
  • I am familiar with GlobalLink and TM Management
  • I am happy to review colleague’s work as well as translate
  • I am interested in localizing for the end user, not just translating
  • I have full working rights in the USA

Terminology accuracy is important to convey the right meaning to the users of our software. At WiseTech Global we use translation software GlobalLink and MultiTerm, together with supporting add-ons. Our software integrates the Translation Memory, allowing translators to edit translations directly within CargoWise One interface and review any suggestions of translations made by our users for acceptance.

Work environment

At the heart of every good people are talented people and that is particularly so at WiseTech Global. Here we have a diverse mix of extraordinary people drawn from many countries, across a wide range of ages, backgrounds and skills. It is our eclectic mix of experiences and personalities, plus our open agile, flat structure that creates a vibrant and strong team culture.

You’ll be based at our innovation centre in WiseTech Global Schaumburg, IL Office, USA and enjoy the high energy and usual perks of a technology company.

We take care of the little things so you can focus on the important tasks of the day. Little things like; daily continental breakfast, seasonal fresh fruit, cake day (monthly), beers & pizza (every Friday).

In addition, we offer a Life Time Fitness Gym Membership Subsidy for anyone in the Chicago office that would like to join. Life Time Fitness is located right next door to our office.

Our culture is one of freedom with responsibility and our outcomes are highly engineered.
