Hiring a South African English language specialist: Job 00055697

Source language(s): English
Target language(s): English

Details of the project: Looking for Creative Language
Specialists with outstanding writing
skills and creative minds to
participate in a project that will
help shape the future of chatbot
technology in many languages. For you
specifically, we will be working with
English for the South Africa market.

As a Language Specialist, your job is
to imagine a particular customer
support situation and then write up
examples of things you (and other
people) might say on the phone. We
call these statements “utterances”.
For example, we may ask you to imagine
that you want to change your flight
for a trip you have already schedule.
We may also ask you to include a date
in your utterance. You would then
write up several different things you
or someone might say in that
situation. Each one of the utterances
you write would need to be different,
using different kinds of words,
different styles. You need to be very
creative and write variations of each
sentence in a way that uses as many
new words as possible and use a
completely different sentence
structure. When you write an utterance
we want you to think about the kinds
of references someone from your
country would make. Specific
companies, specific government
entities, specific local currency,
specific local slang, specific local
brand names., etc

The specific job task will be to
create one sheet of utterances per
task. On the sheet there will be
several prompts (scenarios) and the
creator will create several variants
for expressing an utterance that
relates to the prompt. All specific
rules regarding spelling, grammar,
punctuation, glossary term usage, and
other specialized conventions
(orientation will be provided) MUST be
followed. If not, the creator will be
provided with feedback and ask to edit
their sheet of utterances until it
complies with our quality standards.

Schedule: Approximately 10-25 hours
per week
Location: Remote
Start Date: Immediate
Duration: About 3 months, with
possible extension
Pay Rate: $10 USD per sheet of
utterances (1 sheet = 70 utterances)

Creators will receive project
orientation and training (approx. 2
hours, unpaid). Orientation will
include some short online modules, and
training materials to use alongside
the completion of actual production
tasks. Payment will only kick in once
you successfully complete your first
