English Translator

As an English Translator you translate Coolblue interactions from Dutch into English according to our style guide, with the purpose of effectively catering to our English-speaking customers.

    Pros and cons

    • You translate the Coolblue website to English, from product pages to advice content to customer service articles.
    • You make sure that all English content is grammatically correct, coherent, and consistent with Coolblue's guidelines.
    • You're always up to date when it comes to the Coolblue style guide and contribute ideas to improve it.
    • You contribute to improving the quality of the translated content by keeping the memory of the translation tool up-to-date.
    • You'll have to cancel your gym membership, because the puns will give you a real workout.


    "Bonjour!" Your French colleague, Louisa, happily welcomes you. You grab a cup of coffee and talk about your weekend for a bit. You start working on your new batch of product translations. Later that morning, Catharina, the Translation Team Lead, has an update about a new project. Joëlle has made a project planning and once you've gone over the details, it's time to get to work!
    It's sunny outside, so you and the team decide to eat lunch outside. Once you're back at the office, you go over some feedback Wessel, the team's proofreader, has left on an internal request you translated. Together, you discuss how to best provide the Coolblue style. Time to make some adjustments!

    Uh oh, look at the time. You promised your colleagues you'd play a game of foosball before going home. This time, you finally beat our resident champion Sander. Victory is yours!
