Japan Visualmedia Translation Academy (JVTA) is a Tokyo/LA-based school/agent specialized in translation of visual media content. Since our founding in 1996, we have been dedicated to educating competent translators who can lead the industry and provide versatile multilingual solutions to our customers.

Job position:
Here at JVTA, we teach a course in Japanese-to-English visual media translation, which mostly consists of how to do translation for subtitling and voice overs, but also covers other media such as manga and entertainment-related text translation. We are currently looking for a staff member that we can incorporate into our Japanese-to-English teaching and curriculum development team. This would involve teaching trial lessons and one-off classes to start with, and would eventually lead up to teaching in our main flagship course. Teaching will be conducted mostly in English, however verbal/written communication with JVTA staff and students in Japanese will be required as well.

There will also be some tasks related to curriculum development for the course, as well as other Japanese-English translation related tasks.

・ This position is a full-time position. Visa sponsorship is also available.
・ Transportation fees provided. Social insurance, unemployment insurance, and pension available.

・ Language skills: Native English speaker with advanced business Japanese (JLPT Level N2 or above required, N1 preferred)
・ Professional experience in Japanese-to-English translation (please specify what fields you have translation experience in, and how many years’ experience you have)
・ Excellent English writing skills
・ Good PC knowledge and proficient knowledge of MS Office software (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) essential
・ Teaching experience (in any subject) highly preferred
・ Must currently reside in Japan and be able to commute to our Tokyo office

More details will be discussed during the interview.
