Jobs: Functional Ling: Language Expert, Voice Signal

Editor for this issue: Vanessa Manion <vanessalinguistlist.org>


The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page http://linguistlist.org/jobnet.html.

This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

 Description:
 
 Searching for educated native or near-native speakers of 10 languages to
 help with design and localization of products.   We would like to find people in or
 near Boston, but are willing to pay for travel and expenses for the right people
 from almost anywhere.  Work schedules will be flexible, but we will be trying to
 produce good interfaces with relatively tight timelines so they cannot be casual.
 
 Work will consist of translations, writing pronunciations, locating or making
 lexical resources, possibly recording word strings, and other linguistic duties.
 Our activities will extend for several months in each language, with the
 possibility of continuing employment for particularly skilled participants.
