Översättning för film och tv ställer höga krav på såväl noggrannhet som snabbhet, och det är givetvis viktigt att undertextaren har goda förutsättningar för yrket.

Vi lägger även stor vikt vid hanteringen av vårt modersmål, och ser universitetsstudier i svenska som ett plus.

De sökande som bedöms vara mest intressanta kommer att få skriva ett prov i engelska och svenska, och i det eller de andra språk som är aktuella.

Ansökan ska skickas in per mejl till adressen nedan. Vi kommer sannolikt inte att ha möjlighet att höra av oss till de personer som inte blir kallade för att skriva prov.
