Responsibilities

Why should you come to work at NSA? The work is important with real-world impact, in addition we offer strong growth potential and the world’s best language resources.

A passion for foreign languages is a must for this profession. Language proficiency and understanding of nuance, context, cultural overtones, and dialect enables NSA Language Analysts to provide the most complete and accurate Signals Intelligence picture to U.S. policy makers, military commanders, and Intelligence Community members. As a Language Analyst, you will be part of a team working directly with the original written or spoken language in a dynamic environment. You will determine the relevance of the intelligence collected, research it, analyze it and put it into context. Language Analysts can spend many hours per day translating or transcribing the foreign language into English as part of their analysis. It’s a tremendous responsibility, but one which is extremely satisfying.

Let’s talk about your advancement potential! As a Language Analyst at NSA, you will continue to develop your language abilities and learn new skills. You may take on additional research and reporting responsibilities, apply for field assignments abroad, learn a new dialect or language, or teach at our National Cryptologic School.

We are always looking for well-qualified applicants with exceptional language skills. We are currently looking for applicants with proficiency in the languages listed below. However, if you don’t see your language in the list, you should still apply because our language requirements can change at any time.
