Job Description

Kinsta is a modern cloud hosting company, with a growing club of 25,000+ customers including startups, universities and Fortune 500 firms. We're motivated by excellent quality, and proud to have received a 97% satisfaction rating from our customers. At Kinsta, we offer a remote-first and flexible environment, where our team members feel empowered to make an impact from wherever their hearts call them to go!

We are looking for a freelance Japanese Technical Translator to help us deliver all Kinsta content to the Japanese market. Your primary responsibility will be translating technical content (blog posts, knowledge base/documentation pages, and occasionally videos) from English into Japanese. Your work will help our teams ensure that everything we publish in Japan is localized, correct, immersive, and culturally relevant to the market.

What You Will Do

  • Most importantly, you will provide high-quality, professional translation of our technical content from English into Japanese.
  • You will translate blog posts and documentation pages related to WordPress, web application development/optimization, and coding language/framework tips, including PHP, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, and Java. You don't need to be well versed in all, but at least some of them.
  • Also, you will translate social media assets and video subtitles, both related to technical tips and Kinsta features.

Who You Are

  • You have technical knowledge of coding languages and frameworks.
  • 3+ years of working experience working with coding languages or developing systems. (Note: this does NOT include interpretation or communication between developers: your expertise must be directly related to coding or development of technical projects).
  • 3+ years of experience translating technical content from English to Japanese. Some examples of the topics include database optimization, coding best practices, and API integrations. (Note: this does NOT include basic onboarding manual or interface/frontend translation).
  • You express tenacious research and learning habits.
  • Native fluency in Japanese and an understanding of Japanese culture. We favor natural translations to word-to-word direct translations. Any experience writing in Japanese about technical subjects such as blogging and publishing would be ideal.
  • As English is our working language, fluency in both written and spoken English is a requirement.
  • You have availability to dedicate at least 20 hours per week to work with Kinsta content.

Kinsta is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We will not discriminate and we will take actions to ensure against discrimination in employment, recruitment, advertisements for employment, compensation, termination, promotions, and other conditions of employment against any employee or job applicant on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, citizenship, age, religion, creed, disability, marital status, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or any other status protected by the laws or regulations in the locations where we operate.

By applying to one of our positions, you agree to the processing of the submitted personal data in accordance with Kinsta's Privacy Policy, including the transfer of your data to the United States.
