What’s the atmosphere like at the Ubiqus office in Waterford? We work hard, there’s no denying it. Our clients have high standards and, when we need to, we pull out all the stops to meet their expectations. In return for your skills and dedication we offer competitive salaries and a lively, friendly environment.

  • The careers available at Ubiqus include:

 

Machine Translation Post-Editors (Full-time, in-house role):

After recently developing, training and extensively testing our NMT (Neural Machine Translation) Engines, we are now successfully using NMT in our day-to-day workflow.

As a result, we are looking for full-time in-house Post-Editors / Translators who have an interest in working on Post-editing projects. Ideally, we are looking for translators who have some training and/or experience working as post-editors. We are also open to working with translators who are just beginning to work on such projects. We are looking for native French speakers who can work in the language pair English-French, as well as native English speakers who can work in the language pair French-English.

We will be working on projects using Machine Translation Post-editing when the machine-generated output is of sufficient quality to ensure an increase in productivity for the translator when compared to carrying out the translation “from scratch”.

You will join a team of dedicated Project Managers and translators based in our Waterford office, and be part of a leading multinational Language Service Provider with offices in France, The UK, Spain, Belgium, The USA and Canada.

We would be delighted to receive an emailed application with brief note and CV to Cormac Lapthorne at clapthorne@ubiqus.com

 

In-house Transcriber/Writer:  Not just a typing job. Our legal transcription work is largely verbatim transcription, for which a legal background is useful but not essential.  Our legal transcribers mainly produce verbatim transcripts of court proceedings and legal interviews for a wide range of clients, including solicitors’ firms and Government departments. Our transcription production department works mostly on legal transcripts. We also transcribe and summarise spoken content from business seminars, disciplinary hearings, and other business meetings. Suitable backgrounds could include former PAs, legal secretaries and administration staff, amongst others.

How we work: We use digital audio files, loaded on specialised transcription software to listen to the audio through headphones connected to the PC, while typing the transcript. The position is based in our Waterford City Centre office.

The Person:  You should have a typing speed of 70wpm or above, and an excellent eye (and ear) for detail. Due to the nature of the work, it is essential to be a native English speaker, and have strong written English skills.

To apply for this role, send a brief cover note and CV to Cormac Lapthorne at clapthorne@ubiqus.com

 

In-house Editor (Transcription Department): 

The role of Editor at Ubiqus involves proofreading and editing transcripts that have been written up (typed) by our team of transcribers, checking that the transcripts are accurate, remain faithful to the audio recordings of the meetings transcribed, and are written in perfect English, with correct grammar, punctuation, style etc.

The content will be varied and will principally consist of transcripts of court proceedings, but also business conferences, conference calls, and other spoken events.

The Role: After a training period where you get to know our house style, document templates, Transcribers’ guides etc., you will be responsible for editing documents (English language) to ensure that high quality standards are met. The documents will be written by our team of transcriptionist, and our editors are responsible for the quality control and delivery of these documents to our clients.

A very important aspect of this role is providing feedback and support to our team of transcriptionists, to assist their development and improvement – with the aim of minimising the editing required on transcripts. This includes communicating directly to transcriptionists as well as internally on ability to deliver quality and accurate documents.

The Person:  It is essential to be a native English speaker, and have strong written English skills. It is also very important to have a very accurate ear, to enable you to accurately hear what can sometimes be difficult-to-make out content. It is vital to be a team-player, and be capable of working well under pressure. The role involves the editing of high volumes of transcripts, often to demanding deadlines.

Fluent French and English is essential, and ideally we are looking for someone with experience in the translation industry in a similar role.

Freelance Writers / Transcribers – work from home: Where else can you make a full-time or part-time career as a writer, outside of journalism? Where else can you find yourself working with Microsoft on Monday, the UK government on Tuesday, and a Big 4 accountancy firm on Wednesday? Our writers create near-verbatim or summarised reports for corporate clients, while our transcribers create verbatim transcripts from recordings of various court hearings, witness interviews etc. This can be interesting and varied work, which can often fit in to your own existing schedule, as once you complete the work by the required deadline, you choose your working hours.

If that sounds like you, then apply online.
