How can someone find a job localizing marketing content (taking poorly translated material and fixing it up for US consumers)? I've heard that it's a real job but can't find much information about it

The title is usually some variation of "content & localization" and they are definitely out there :) It's also an industry where freelancers can do extremely well.

This is an extremely popular role for freelancers, especially when working with e-commerce brands. You should be able to find plenty of localization roles if you look on different freelancing platforms.

Totally in my wheelhouse! I do a lot of this type of work on a freelance basis. It is great work but not necessarily steady, as a lot of companies need content for only one specific purpose (like a user manual or a website) instead of ongoing work. So it takes some looking around but if you try out a few freelance sites that is usually a great way to get your start, my favorite is Upwork even though they take 20% of whatever you earn

Hi all!

Seeking advice on job titles.

I'm looking for roles that have aspects of event strategy & marketing. I have experience doing both and would like to continue on that path but I struggle with what titles to look for. Company suggestions are appreciated as well! Is there a role out there that would allow me to work with clients and plan their event/marketing strategy?

This person doesn’t necessarily need to have both skills but if they did great, but if only one, great too.

Round or exact numbers on banners/LPs? I was curious about this since in negotiations for example or pricing it's better to have the exact number. But if you have a case study, for example, is it better to say "Client X increased their revenue to 1,000,000 ARR" instead of "Client X increased their revenue to 987,500 ARR" ? Anyone has seen any impact on conversion rates?
