Babel Announces Montreal Expansion

babel mediaBabel is pleased to announce that due to unprecedented demand for its high quality Localisation QA services, it is planning a major expansion of its Montreal based teams, especially those covering Social Media and Casual Games. As part of this major expansion, Babel will be moving into a new purpose built 20,000 sq. ft state-of-the-art studio located in the heart of Montréal this summer.

Babel, known as the industry leader in Localisation QA services, is planning to hire over 200 new team members including testers covering all European and Asian languages. Whether you already work in interactive entertainment and would like to “upgrade” or are considering joining us as a trainee we have a great package to offer you. For applicants from outside Quebec/Europe we will be offering very exciting re-location packages, and if required work visa’s.

Richard Leinfellner CEO of Babel Media commented “As Babel’s clients tap into new regions and need to support more languages; we need to grow as well, especially for all the exciting expansion we are seeing in Social Media and Casual games, where language support is a proven driver for increased player revenue. As Montreal has become the major East Coast interactive entertainment hub, it has become one of the most vibrant cities to come and work in this industry, as proven by many of our current team who have moved here.”

Bruce Stamm, COO of Babel Media, adds “with these major new programs and our planned new studio, it is an exciting time to join the video game industry in Montréal. We will be hiring project managers, test leads and testers. As long as you have great command of your native language and solid English we have positions at all levels of experience so regardless if you have tested before, or not, as long as you pass our test, we can teach you all you need to know.”
