ROME, May 26th, 2021
Translated, a company that combines human creativity and machine intelligence to craft quality translations at speed, has two highly unusual job openings. It is looking for a seasoned skipper and experienced team manager to lead the crew of the Translated 9, which will race around the world as part of the Ocean Globe Race 2023 (OGR23).
The race will commemorate the 50th anniversary of an epic competition, the Whitbread Round the World Race. The route embarks from Europe and traverses the Southern Hemisphere and will take months to complete. What will make the new skipper and team manager’s jobs even more challenging than piloting a small craft across a vast ocean is that they will be leading a mostly novice crew -- some 70 percent will be new to sailing -- in a Swan 65 boat that was built in 1974, using pre-Internet technology, meaning no GPS or mobile tools for navigation or modern weather technology.
