POSITION DESCRIPTION

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

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.

  • 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, used 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.
