Job description: 

MHT Corporation has positions available for experienced translators able to work from Japanese into English, from English into Japanese, or both ways. We are especially looking for people with a background working with financial, legal or IT documents, although we welcome applications in all specializations.

This is a remote work position, which means you can work in any location. We offer very regular work, and so seek freelance translators who have substantial availability and can make a significant time commitment. This should be attractive to translators who wish to enjoy the benefits of remote work, but who would also like a degree of earnings stability.

We calculate your translation rate based on your experience and qualifications. We will advise you of your starting rate in any offer we make after reviewing your application and your trial translations. We may also increase your rate over time, as you become more familiar with the type of work we do.

We work using our own online translation system, and if accepted you will be provided with a login for that system plus the necessary guidance on how to use it. Most translation is done using this system, although there may be times when it may done using Microsoft Office products.
