Account Director – Mostly Hispanic (Spanish/Bilingual)
Infusion by Castells

Company or Employer Infusion by Castells
Job Location New York

SEGMENT: Mostly Hispanic (Spanish/Bilingual)

DEPARTMENT: Multilingual Communications Services (MCS)

REPORTS TO: CEO/Chief Strategy Officer

OFFICE: New York

SALARY: $120,000–$130,000/yr.

 

POSITION DESCRIPTION

The MCS Account Director will lead the strategy and manage the day-to-day Spanish content ‘transcreations’ and design work for the agency’s largest telecom/mobile Client (Charter/Spectrum) across all their business areas from marketing materials to customer service, retention, retail, billing, operations, sales, and customer journey including emails, chat, tutorials, website and CX/UX.

  • While language focus is Spanish, other language translations are also included
  • Majority content deliverables but also includes art direction and video production

 

The MCS department is fairly new for Charter/Spectrum and the agency (since 2022) with an agency base team of (7) people, now expanding to (10) including this position. This centralized unit ensures a consistent, holistic customer-centric in-language experience for all customer-facing communications. We lead, manage and execute a breadth of Spanish/Bilingual content, assure quality control and timely delivery of all projects, manage and update the glossary of consumer, category and business nomenclature, proof, vet and edit other translator agencies’ work and help Clients finetune the workflows and practices.

  • Linguistic Context: This is about Transcreations/Adaptations, NOT Literal Translations. We need someone who has an understanding of the English source content meaning, context, syntax and tone, to be able to evaluate it correctly across the complexities of U.S. Hispanic consumers and their countries of origin. Key: knowledge of the universal Spanish-language is key (no colloquial/dialects), verbiage with no foreign equivalent: Tech Terms (e.g., Stream, 5G), Spanglish, and use of “Tú” vs. “Usted” pronouns.
  • Agency NLP Tools: We have 7+ years with Spectrum on our WordFast Pro Cat Tool, which we use as a starting point to translate all MCS content, then our copywriters vet, edit, and enhance the content to assure it is properly transcreated in a consistent, neutral, in-context Spanish aided by our glossary and style guide. We’re always testing new AI tools and considering SmartCat as it has a robust, user-friendly, customizable platform.
