wintranslation is currently seeking Ottawa-based translators for occasional Government of Canada translation assignments. We will assist translators in obtaining a valid security clearance which is a process that is simple and free of charge.

Most of the time, translators can do their work at home. For certain Protected documents, which may require a security clearance from the translator, we may ask the translator to do it in our office.

The assignments vary in length and in complexity. The ideal candidate should be a freelance translator with experience who also have other clients as our volume of work only provides occasional income.

To apply, please send your resume to recruit @

Please include the following if you are interested in working with our company.

  • An up-to-date copy of your resume
  • Not required but helpful: a copy of your active Enhanced Reliability security clearance form, if you have one
  • 2 sample translations of the languages you provide services in. The samples should be at least 1000 words in length and be sure to include both the source and translated text. If you have trouble finding samples, please do send us your resume first.
  • Any other documents relating to your abilities as a translator, such as a certification with a professional translator association

We accept resumes for any language combination.
