Founded in May 2015, Papier is a fast-growing, London-based start-up, which has raised ~£7 million since launch and is changing the face of online personalisation. Papier offers a sophisticated user experience and delivers beautifully designed products, on-demand and all over the world, from personalised greeting cards to wedding invitations and stationery.

We are looking for an external, freelance German speaking copywriter & translator to help us build out our German website and marketing materials. In this role, you’ll use your copywriting and translating skills to develop engaging, culturally relevant copy across our product and content pages for customers in the German market.

Reporting into the Head of Copy, you’ll be responsible for translating existing English language web copy and creating German-market specific content that fits with the Papier Tone of Voice. You’ll work externally and respond to briefs from the Head of Copy on a regular weekly basis, though the amount of work will fluctuate depending on projects happening in the rest of the business. To begin with you will conduct a copy review of the German site but once that has taken place the average amount of work a month would be 4-6 hours.

You’ll have some experience translating English copy into German and writing engaging German content for a UK-based, design-focused e-commerce brand. The role will initially focus on translating existing content but will broaden to incorporate writing German-specific SEO content articles and writing printed marketing materials for the German market.
