2017.01.24 UK translation agency recruiting “Emoji Translator"
Today Translations, a major London-based translation agency, is recruiting an “Emoji Translator” for a new specialist position. Details are currently available on their website.

Text messages are an excellent internet-based communication tool. On the other hand, one aspect of this type of communication is that messages are likely to be short and direct and may cause misunderstanding. Thus the “emoji (pictograph)” has come to attention as a means of expressing emotions that are hard to convey in text messages.

It is said that the current emoji culture evolved from the “i-mode emoji” uniquely developed and implemented by NTT docomo, Inc., the largest cell phone provider in Japan, in its “i-mode” internet service in 1999. Afterward, emoji was implemented in Apple’s “iPhone”, and the “emoji” soon became a popular mode of conveying emotions in text messages throughout the world.

There are differences in how people perceive emoji depending on their language and culture. Acknowledging this, Today Translations is searching for an emoji translator with a high capability in overcoming these hurdles. The emoji translator is potentially an “up-and-coming profession” for a new generation of people.
