First of all, we really do appreciate that you would like to work with Atlas in a career using your languages. We don’t take this lightly, and we want to start off any working relationship on the best footing.

That said, we do not accept generic applications. They’re no fun to receive and definitely no fun to read. So, please, no canned or one-line messages and especially no mass emails.

If you’d really like to work with us, it’s very important that you contact us first and make a really good first impression. Don’t worry; this isn’t a one-way street type of request—we’ll be doing our part to make a great impression on you as well!

Note: We are actively looking for translators INTO the following languages:

Afrikaans, Arabic, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Hebrew, Irish, Japanese, Kurdish, Norwegian, Punjabi, Swedish, and Vietnamese.

If you offer these languages, please contact us as soon as possible.
