Following the successful launch of our Spanish website, we are now looking for somebody exceptional who can translate our site into French and, subsequently, head up and run our French Diet Doctor site.
Are you passionate about the impact a keto or low-carb diet can have on people’s health? Would you love to join an outstanding team in creating low-carb guides, articles and news posts that can change the lives of millions?
If so, we want to hear from you. This could be the opportunity of a lifetime.
Come join our company in beautiful Stockholm, Sweden. Don’t live here yet? No problem – we’ll help you move and find a place to live.
About the position
We’re looking for a top-class native-speaker of French who will translate our material from English to French and run the new site.
Are you experienced in translation and passionate about low carb and how it can help millions of French-speaking people around the world? Are you open-minded, creative and good at working with and managing people? If so, you may be the person we’re looking for.
Your job will involve translating Diet Doctor into French with excellence and run the site. But, that’s not all: you’d be involved in deciding the strategy for bringing Diet Doctor to French speakers, forming networks with low-carb experts and enthusiasts within the global French-speaking community, and staying up to date on the latest low-carb news and science. Plus, like every team member at Diet Doctor, you’d have a real voice in our decisions about what our company should do to make low carb simple for people everywhere.
The role is highly challenging and not for everyone. You’ll need all the following qualities to be considered for the job:
- Native French speaker, impeccable written and spoken language.
- Write and speak excellent English.
- Eat low carb and believe in its benefits for people with obesity and diabetes.
- Love to work independently, and to get things done fast with consistently high quality.
- Work meticulously.
- Enjoy coordinating the work of several people to create a great outcome.
- Learn fast.
- Live near our main office in central Stockholm, Sweden, or are willing to move here to be part of our amazing team.
- Have a strong desire to do something meaningful.
- Several years’ experience with translating medical or health-related texts from English to French.
- The ability to think strategically and outside the box about how to bring low carb to the global French-speaking population in an effective and culturally-sensitive way.
- A belief in the importance of our values: trustworthiness, simplicity, inspiration and goodness.
- Experience with WordPress.
- Photoshop skills.
Why work for Diet Doctor
Diet Doctor is the world’s largest low-carb site, with around 250,000 daily visitors, 45,000 paying members and 20 full-time coworkers (about 40 when including freelancers) – almost doubling in size every year. We aim to keep our rapid growth up for as long as possible as this enables us to make a big positive impact in the world.
Our goal is to empower people everywhere to revolutionize their health – by making low carb simple.
We are funded by the people (through our optional membership), owned by those who work here, and – because we want to build a company that can do good for 100+ years – we’ve turned down every investment opportunity we’ve received from venture capitalists. Fortunately, with the amazing support of our members, we’ve been able to fund this growth with zero outside investments.
We offer competitive salaries and the opportunity to become a co-owner in our explosively growing company. More importantly, we’ll give you the chance to work for a purpose-driven organization that truly exists to make the world a better place.
You’ll get the opportunity to travel internationally too, if you want that. Some of our coworkers regularly travel to low-carb related conferences all over the world. This could help you network with our international team of expert contributors.
Our team goes on a week-long low-carb cruise in the Caribbean most years, and we also travel to film low-carb cooking videos with world-class talents. For example, ten people from our company will soon be at Low Carb Breckenridge, filming presentations, interviews and cooking videos.
Most of our full-time staff work together in a beautiful office in central Stockholm. So would you, if this position is right for you.
Don’t live in Stockholm? No problem – we’ll help you move here and find a place to live.
Timing not perfect? Reach out anyway – we’re willing to wait for the right person.

This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss – apply now.
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.
Our goal is to empower people everywhere to revolutionize their health, by making low carb simple. At least a billion people could benefit from eating fewer carbs, primarily but not exclusively people with obesity, type 2 diabetes and other problems related to metabolic syndrome. These people are currently not getting the support they deserve, and we aim to change that.
To achieve this goal, we need to work with fantastic people who are passionate about the enormous benefits keto and low carb can have for people, and who can help us create incredible products that make low carb simple.
Could you be one of those people? Do you have the essential qualities we’re looking for? And are you the right person to translate and run our French Diet Doctor site?
