Join Our Team

Are you a fast, detail-oriented translator with a college degree, experienced in a variety of document types, working into your dominant language? We'd like to meet you! We are a company founded by, owned by and managed by former freelance translators, so we strive to remain the kind of agency we always wanted to work for. Please email a resume (CV) to info@texantranslation.com. Preference given to translators in or from Texas, and translators with ATA certification or a T/I degree. Full disclosure: we don't hire translators with typos or grammatical errors on their resumes, cover letters or emails, so show us your best English. We also rarely work with translators who don't belong to the American Translators Association or other professional group, so please highlight your memberships and credentials when you contact us.
