‘Today translations’, is a company based in London Financial district. It advertised on its website for a translator whose job will consist of interpreting the miniature images, from smiley faces to pizzas.

“Emoji translation is itself an emerging field — but one dominated to date by software, which is often insensitive to the many cultural differences in usage and interpretation,” said the advert.

“We are therefore seeking an exceptional individual to provide the human touch needed where translation software is inadequate.”

Chief Executive Jurga Zilinskiene said the company decided to create the freelance position after being approached by a client to translate a family diary from English into emoticons. She said, “We started looking into it and decided we had to do much more work to understand the culture of emojis across the globe”. Hence, emoji translator.

The recruit will be also be required to make monthly reports on emoji trends and search cultural differences in usage along with carrying out translations.

The advert added, “In the absence of any native speakers, the successful candidate should be able to demonstrate a passion for emojis, combined with cutting-edge knowledge and awareness of areas of confusion and cultural/international differences”.

The company works with 3,000 linguists who speak some 200 languages.
