Need Writer Who is Familiar with Filipino Culture 【1 article = 5000yen~】
Thank you for visiting our job description page! We are a Tokyo-based digital media company, and we are actively recruiting people who meet our criteria.
We are looking for highly skilled writers for English articles who can work with our team for the long term.
5000 yen (about $45) per article (includes all taxes and commissions)
※Salary raises available depending on your ability and work quality
This JD is for a sample article that we ask you to write as part of our screening process. We won't pay for the sample article.
【About our Website: mybest】
We produce articles in English introducing products from various categories, including home electronics, cosmetics, and other daily necessities.
You are free to choose the product you write about, so you can learn about things you're interested in! Of course, you can also write articles about what you are already familiar with.
Basically, our articles are made up of two parts: a "How to Choose" section and a "Recommended Products Ranking" section. You work will be to use Google Translate to translate the original Japanese version of the "How to Choose" section and then to rewrite it in your own words. This is a creative, not a literal, translation: you will be utilizing the information and general structure of the Japanese article, not the wording or rhetoric. Remember, this article is your original work. You will also be expected to localize the content for a Filipino audience. As for the "Recommended Products Ranking" section, your work will be to research the best products available online in your country and to rank them.
