Team mission

Join our Localization team, where we are on a mission to enable non-English speaking users to thrive on GetYourGuide and unlock the world’s most unforgettable travel experiences without language and cultural barriers. Our team flourishes on strong bonds, an open and social environment, and a shared love for hilarious memes.

We are looking for a Senior Language Specialist to help us deliver an authentic localized experience to our Italian-speaking users. This multifaceted role bridges the worlds of linguistics and project management, presenting a distinctive career path for you to establish yourself as an expert in the field of localization. Your work involves hands-on language tasks, spearheading impactful initiatives, and collaborating with the rest of the Localization team and stakeholders across the business. This is a full-time role at our Berlin office.

You will:

  • Transcreate English content into Italian for our app, website, ads, brand, and marketing content (did we mention the topic is travel experiences?)
  • Initiate and own projects that address localization processes, issues, or opportunities within topics such as user testing, AI in UX, A/B testing, or internationalization – the sky’s the limit
  • Perform linguistic and functional QA on Italian content to ensure a high-quality localized experience
  • Provide linguistic and cultural expertise in cross-departmental collaborations to shape and inform localization practices
  • Provide regular updates on your work to team members and stakeholders to share wins, learnings, and feedback
  • Review and assess the quality of key content produced by freelance linguists and AI
  • Own and maintain tone-of-voice guidelines, style guides, and glossaries to ensure consistency in Italian content

Who you are:

  • Native Italian linguist with an excellent command of English and experience in transcreating content from English into Italian
  • Proficient in UI localization
  • Proactive attitude and ambition to contribute beyond transcreating content
  • Proven capabilities of ownership and contributions to the localization/business agenda
  • Excellent communicator with the ability to work in an agile environment and build trust with colleagues
  • Experienced with scalable localization infrastructures, ideally in the travel/e-commerce space

How we set you up for success:

  • Invest in your development with an annual personal growth budget
  • Become a part of our success with virtual stock options
  • Enjoy flexibility with a hybrid work-from-home and telecommuting policy
  • Save on transportation costs with discounted public transportation tickets
  • Support your loved ones with generous maternity and paternity leave policies

And more...
