Localization Manager

Do you want to be part of the digital school revoloution. We are looking for a structured change maker who wants to manage localization and translation of our amazing content.

At Binogi, we believe learning should be fun and rewarding. Our platform currently covers middle school curriculum in the form of short animated stories, and students can test their skills and knowledge with engaging quizzes.

All our content is translated and localized into many languages, and here is where you come in! 

We need your help to coordinate the translations and localisations (Dollars vs Euros, Celsius vs Fahrenheit) of our online lessons and ensure that the quality is top-notch! This involves communicating with our global team of freelancers using our proprietary software interface. 

We are seeking a structured and process-oriented individual to help monitor and streamline our content conversion pipeline. 

Ideally, you have a keen interest in languages. Being detail-oriented, you are able to view animation for the most minor imperfections. 

You have the ability to assess the energy and tone of an actor's voice without necessarily understanding what is being said! Don't worry, the translators will make sure the words are correct :) 

You have a passion for learning and understand the possibilities of digital education technology. 

You're fluent in English and probably another major language. 

You are able to work effectively together with your colleagues in the production team. You have the necessary skills in image processing, video and audio editing software (Adobe CreativeSuite) and are eager to learn more. You are curious, quick to learn and keen to share with others.
