Job description:

Hi Proz,

I am remotely managing the localization of a medical assistant application for one of my clients that has been localized and released for two languages so far. I am currently looking for native Russian, Arabic & Braz. Portuguese language specialists who together will translate the app and support it with ongoing translation updates for these new markets. Each language is going to be staffed with two translators that can organize the workload among themselves and can communicate about the project with all other teams. This open process has produced optimal results for the other languages already and expects close collaboration between participants via CAT & Task Tools and Slack channels provided.

This is why candidates need to have not only good linguistic, but preferably also project management skills on their CV. All work will be conducted on a Cloud CAT tool in close collaboration with the developers, so some technical proficiency (general understanding of HTML placeholders) and excellent English skills are required.

The release for the new languages is planned for the end of August and the time until then consists of two phases:

1. Translating and proofing the main text files (approx. 80.000 words per language, divided by the two linguists)
2. LQA testing and refinement of the implemented translations

Phase 1 is going to be paid with a standard word/rate. After that, your work will be tracked and invoiced by you with an hourly rate agreement. For the LQA phase of the release period in August, 40 hours of your time will be required. After release, you can track your time with each (mostly weekly) update tasks.

I am looking for language specialists that are creative but also flexible and know to present solutions to issues encountered.
After reviewing your application, I will contact you so we can schedule a call to get to know each other before heading into the project.

Looking forward to hear from you!



NO PMS OR EMAILS - Only Applications submitted via the Loquatics web-form will be considered for this job posting!

Don't apply for this assignment if you are representing a language service provider or vendor - I am only looking building a remote team with direct freelance contacts for my client, that eventually will be functioning as the outsourced translation department of their company.

I am not a language service provider or vendor and can therefore be completely transparent regarding payments and the other specialists working on this project, which means all participants can freely communicate with each other at all times.
