Openings in MACHINE TRANSLATION at L&H-LT Barcelona

The L&H Language Technology GmbH & Co. KG (previously under the name

Munich (Germany), is a leading developer of machine translation

The L&H-LT language development division is based in Barcelona
(Spain). For the development of new machine translation language pairs
we have several job openings. The new candidates will back up the
current team, comprising 45 members, in designing and implementing
formal analysis, transfer, and generation grammars, or encoding the
corresponding monolingual and bilingual lexicons.

Candidate profile:

- (Computational) Linguists for grammar and lexicon development
(ref. LING) with:
 * university degree in linguistics or computational linguistics
 * some programming experience (grammar developers only);
 * experience in writing formal grammars for natural languages would be a plus


* English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Dutch

Successful candidates should:

* be native speakers of one and have near-native proficiency in
another of the languages mentioned above; additional languages would
be an asset since further language pairs will soon be added
* be willing to work together with the rest of the team
* have good social and communicative abilities
* show perseverance, accuracy and thoroughness

Working language:	English

Starting date:		As soon as possible (open for at least one year)

Term of contract:	2 years with possibility of becoming permanent

Office location: Center of Barcelona (in the charming 19th century
district Eixample, within walking distance from the old part of the city 
and from the famous 'Las Ramblas')

You will join a young, international, and highly motivated
team. L&H-LT combines research and development of market-ready
products. This will thus offer a great opportunity to those people who
want to apply their acquired knowledge and apply their skills in
real-world conditions. Since the L&H-LT long-term objective is to
implement machine translation products for all possible language pair
combinations between Dutch, English, French, German, Italian,
Portuguese and Spanish, this will also give future prospects to
candidates beyond the initial term of contract.
