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.

As a Language Analyst at NSA, you will have the opportunity to further develop your language abilities, increase your regional expertise, and cultural awareness.
