From Slator: Millions of Words, Hundreds of Events: Inside FIFA’s Language Service

 

From the article:

The Language Services Department comprises 17 employees; that is, 14 translators, two interpreting coordinators, and the head of department

“We prefer to work with freelance translators, many of whom have worked with us for a number of years and are very familiar with our style, terminology, and types of documents.”

Interesting article, but before you jump onto the FIFA website to sign up as a freelance translator, you should know that it seems like these would be volunteer positions (so, unpaid). The article doesn’t seem to make any mention of this.
