You will be able to translate from English to Mandarin and vice versa. You will have a keen eye for detail and be comfortable working across time zones in a multinational team. A prior knowledge of WeChat and other Chinese social-media platforms is a prerequisite of the role.

ArtReview’s Chinese edition

The primary responsibilities of the Assistant Editor relate to ArtReview’s quarterly Chinese edition. You will be responsible for clearing text and image rights for articles moving from ArtReview and ArtReview Asia to the Chinese edition. And you will verify translations of the same. You will also liaise between the Chinese edition’s Shanghai-based team and ArtReview’s London headquarters.

Additionally, you will work with the China team on preparing content for ArtReview’s WeChat accounts, marketing and other social media. This will include both content from the magazine and original posts. You will also assist in the management of ArtReview’s Chinese-language commercial partnerships and ensure that the China and London offices have a coordinated approach. And you will be creatively involved in the marketing campaigns for the Chinese edition. In both cases this will involve both writing and preparing posts and translating posts from English to Mandarin.
