Language

Jobs

Translator/Editor

To be a translator/editor you need to have the ability to write and express yourself well in the target language. This job allows information and ideas to be exchanged between languages and cultures. Thus, you will also need an understanding in the cultures of the people. Prospective translators/editors may engage in tasks such as business correspondence, website development, creating subtitles for movies, translating/editing official papers and literature and many other fields.

Voice Actors

Voice actors are people who provide voices anywhere there needs to be a "voice." Most of the work for foreigners would be making foreign language education related materials (e.g. audiobook, exam preparation). It is important for voice actors to act well with a clear tone and possess vocal stamina to carry them through long recording sessions. There is a rising demand for voice actors, yet Korea does not have any systematic agent for them.
