As a Translator for League of Legends: Wild Rift, you will report into Wild Rift's Engineering Lead. You will translate documents from English to Mandarin, and vice versa. You will partner closely with the game development team and will ensure materials are treated with the highest sensitivity to confidentiality. You will use your bilingual fluency (Mandarin and English) to enhance communication. You will also apply your understanding of engineering and gaming concepts to translate relevant terminology.

• Written Translation - Ensure translation is readable and understandable, while not losing any major concepts or important details.
• Grammar, spelling, and writing skills are important to convey the core of any translated messages.
• Information Organization - Organize information and find ways to structure multiple pieces of information.
• Team Collaboration - Ensure you are working collaboratively with all members of the team - both within Riot and with non-Riot partners.
• Cultural Sensitivity - Enhance understanding of both Chinese and American business practices to influence any team communications.

Required Qualifications:
• Bilingual Fluency in Mandarin and English. Experience translating both verbally and through documentation.

Desired Qualifications:
• 1+ year Translation experience with knowledge of terminology management and CAT tools
