Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford, which furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.
The Global Academic Business publishes books, journals and digital resources for the research, professional and higher education markets.
About the Role
Content is the cornerstone of the Oxford University Press award-winning range of online and print products, and we pride ourselves on the quality and accuracy of our data.
Content Architecture supports GAB's publishing strategy through the development, implementation, management, and licensing of its digital content. We provide expertise and strategic guidance on digital content matters, and develop, manage and support workflow and content management tools, so that our content is fit-for-purpose and can be reused and integrated into the print and digital publishing process.
Global Language Solutions (GLS) is a new Oxford Dictionaries initiative to source high quality dictionary content in multiple languages for revenue-generating internal and external use.
Licensing content and metadata is an integral part of OUP’s digital publishing strategy. You will support the preparation, testing and distribution of content, especially foreign language dictionary content acquired through the GLS program, to third parties and for own-brand products.
You will provide data, information, quality assurance, and technical support for the XML, whether licensed by the Global Business Development Group or developed as own-brand apps, ensuring licensee needs are met and the supplied content is faithfully presented.
This is an exciting and challenging role requiring a versatile individual with excellent analytical and people skills, including:
• Practical experience working with XML data – esp. text editing and validation tools
• Methodical and iterative test experience with digital products
• Data analysis and processing skills, e.g. regular expressions, xslt, Perl scripts
• Aptitude for acquiring new technical skills
• Language skills – knowledge of at least one foreign language desirable
• Linguistic skills – knowledge of grammar structures and dictionary conventions
• Communication skills – esp. ability to explain technical issues to non-technical audience
• Sharp eye for detail
