Netflix is advertising for language specialists to adapt the service into a number of new European and Asian languages on its website, sparking rumours about where the video-on-demand service plans to launch next.

In a posting on its official jobs page, Netflix said it was looking for “highly motivated individuals with the right mix of technical, organisational and communication skills to provide localisation for the Netflix experience in the following languages: Turkish, Dutch, Hindi, French, and Korean.”

The ad stated that candidates would translate and customise marketing, user interface and content materials for the target market, and said native fluency was essential. Prior knowledge of the film and entertainment business was also listed as a plus.

The US-based firm has already expanded into Canada, Latin America, the UK and Ireland and Scandinavia.
