Job Description

Supercell is now offering a perfect chance for you, a future Project Manager / Manager, to get to know the world of localization and to take your first steps towards your dream career as a Localization Intern! In this position you will be working closely with Supercell’s internal Localization team, internal game teams and external translator teams that are located in Tokyo and Dublin.

As a Localization Intern at Supercell you will be mainly helping and observing Supercell’s internal Localization team and the external translator team’s Project Managers in their day-to-day operations. You will be exploring new tech solutions and solving various requests related to game texts, support materials, community texts, marketing campaigns, game subtitles, scripts and voice overs. Your specific tasks will be however assigned based on your skills and interests.

This internship is ideal for a (final-year) language / translation student, who is dreaming of a future career as a Project Manager / Manager in the world of localization and who already has some knowledge of localization tools and translation processes. You should be nearing the end of your studies and curious to learn more about the localization and translation related matters in a creative industry full of its own twists and turns.

You should however be primarily based in the Helsinki metropolitan area as the position requires active presence at Supercell’s office. During your internship you also get a chance to travel to Dublin to meet the translator teams face-to-face and work as a Project Manager for one month.

My journey as a Localization Intern at Supercell was nothing short of amazing. From day one, I was welcomed into a supportive and collaborative work environment, surrounded by outstanding coworkers who were always eager to share their knowledge and expertise.

One of the standout aspects of my experience was the incredible wealth of knowledge I gained as I got to take responsibility for my own work. I had the privilege of collaborating on a wide range of projects that not only challenged me but also expanded my skillset significantly. Whether it was tackling complex problems or exploring innovative solutions, every day presented an exciting opportunity for professional growth.

I wholeheartedly recommend this opportunity to anyone seeking an internship that offers unparalleled learning and growth opportunities in such a creative industry.
