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

language teachers, translators, and students to become involved with our network
of 800 linguistic professionals.
For this project, we would like to put several evaluators under contract for a

project per year, where the projects require about 10 hours of time over about a
week, with completely flexible scheduling). In some cases, more projects come up

This work pays $25/hr as 1099 (freelance) self-employment income. Dates are
"as-needed", but we expect the first project around the end of November for most
languages. This work can be done completely offsite (US or abroad), from your
Windows computer. You must have Microsoft Access 2000 or greater installed for
Requirements include a tolerance for (and demonstrated experience) with doing
very repetitive and detail-oriented tasks; good communication skills in English;

experience in writing, editing, teaching, or proofreading in the target

average ability to manage files and applications on your Windows computer;
broadband internet connection; knowledge of technical vocabulary in your language.
You must have US work authorization if US based. Sorry, but the Butler Hill
Group cannot sponsor employment visas.

status in your cover letter or email.
