About Diet Doctor
In the middle of the current epidemics of obesity, diabetes and other diseases, people around the world are still receiving bad advice – take more pills and continue to do things the way you’ve always done (even if it makes you sick). The lobbyists for the pharmaceutical industry and the agricultural industry would love to keep things as they are, in order to preserve a profitable market. Old experts continue to spread outdated and incorrect ideas that slows down any progress.
But the industry lobbyists and backwards experts cannot control the internet, they can’t stop knowledge and inspiration from spreading there. Our job is to speed up that development, and make sure that ever more people get the possibility to revolutionize their health and reach their potential.
We’re looking for one or more top-class Spanish-speaking translators who will translate our material from English to Spanish. This role will fit an enthusiastic professional with impeccable language skills in both Spanish and English.

- Excellent English, both written and spoken language.
- You eat low carb and believe in its benefits for people with obesity and diabetes.
- You like to solve problems and work independently.
- You work meticulously.
- Several years’ of experience of translating medical or health-related texts from English to Spanish.
- Belief in our values: The importance of simplicity (think Apple) and trustworthiness – you think that it is important to have a healthy lifestyle, and you avoid bad carbs as much as you can. You also have a strong will to do something good and meaningful for the world.
- Desire to learn fast. The problems we work with are enormous – hundreds of millions of people are affected. In order to make a difference, we need to work hard and smart, and learn quickly.
- Competence and ideas that can strengthen and improve our organization.
- High ambitions, and a desire for maximal quality and constant improvement.
- Previous experience with the WordPress platform.

In order to fit in our team you need to live up to the requirements mentioned above, but otherwise we’re positively set towards diversity – we encourage diversity in skills, interests, religious and political beliefs, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, etc.
