Freelance Copywriter (transcreation) ENG>FLEMISH or ENG>FRENCH

Scroll to content

We are looking for a transcreation* soulmate in BELGIUM - a trusted freelance writer we can call when needed to adapt our creative work and social media posts for the local market. 

If the Oatly voice feels like it could have come out of your brain, travelled through your fingers and landed in the world via your keyboard, then this might be for you.

These are the things we will be looking for:

+ You are a native Flemish or French writer with solid command of English

+ You have your finger on the pulse of the cultural conversation in Belgium 

+ You have experience transcreating from English to Flemish or French

As part of the interview process, we will ask you to work on a transcreation task which consists of adapting three social media posts in either Flemish or French. It will be important to demonstrate flow and creative writing, as well as the ability to stick to the meaning of the original copy because it has been carefully and very intentionally crafted.

The goal of this task is to determine if you are able to embody the Oatly tone of voice in Flemish or French whilst ensuring cultural relevance.

 If any of this speaks to you, and the thought of being the Oatly voice in Belgium brings you great joy, then you should probably apply. That would be a good first step. 

We're open to chatting with writers from all backgrounds and walks of life, but we will want to see a solid body of work - bonus points for each writing sample that's not an ad! 

*Transcreation = Translation + creation
