Title: Freelance Translation Project Manager – with a HUGE passion (borderline obsession) for mountain and winter sports! ⛷🏔



  • Have a HUGE passion for outdoor / action sports. You spend your free time enjoying your favorite outdoor sports, obsessing over gear and planning your next adventure in the mountains, on the trail, in the ocean or out on the saddle. 🤙🏻

  • The only thing that gets your adrenaline pumping more than being out on the saddle, in the lineup, on the trail or in the mountains? Managing content for the brands you love and wear every day in the great outdoors!

  • Have 3+ years of experience as a translation project manager on the LSP side.

  • Have an in-depth knowledge of TMS software (specifically Phrase TMS).

  • Are comfortable with and confident leading/participating in client-facing communication (written, video calls).

  • Have an excellent command of the English language and speak at least 1 more language.

  • Have great communication skills and value relationships and people as much as systems, technology and processes.

  • Are independent, take the initiative, and have a positive, can-do attitude.

  • Apply critical thinking and take extreme ownership throughout your work.

  • Are very detail-oriented, but always look at the big picture.

  • Strive to provide a great service and experience to both the accounts AND the freelancers you manage.

  • You are based (and available) anywhere with the GMT, CET or EEST time zone.

  • Bonus points if your first language is Swedish, and you have worked as a translator in the past.

You’ll join an amazing team of outdoor sports AND language-loving translation professionals and a fully remote work environment, managing exciting projects for some of the world’s most iconic outdoor and sports brands.

*We’ve previously received hundreds of applications for this position, but the vast majority didn’t fit the requirements.

❌ We would strongly recommend against filling out the form if you:

– Are looking for employment (this is a freelance position).

– Don’t have a passion for outdoor sports (we won’t be a good cultural fit. Also, please don’t use ChatGTP to inflate reality, e.g. if you hiked once when you were 3 years old this probably doesn’t qualify).

– Don’t have any experience as a PM on the LSP side (unfortunately being a translator and managing your own project doesn’t qualify, and neither does being a localization PM for a company, as these require different skillsets).

– Are based in a time zone that isn’t mentioned above. Note: EEST means Eastern European Standard Time, not Eastern Standard Time (EST).
