Job description:


Green Translations has been in the translation field for over 18 years and is located in Los Angeles, California.

We are looking to hire a very detail-oriented native-English linguist with strong communicative skills to work on a 14,000-word project about cleaning products as a proofreader. We would like someone who can stay in contact with the translators at all times via email and who can discuss with them and agree on terminology and other issues so that there is consistency throughout the documents. Availability from August 14 to August 20 is essential. By the end of each of these days, the translators will be delivering the part of the translation they have translated during that day, so that proofreading can get started without any delay and all documents are duly reviewed and proofread on or before August 20.
Proofreading not only requires making sure the text is error-free, but also comparing against the source file to detect mistranslations and wrongly formatted text (layout and formatting have to perfectly match the source documents).
The candidate has to be familiar with Track Changes feature on MS Word.

If this seems like something you would feel comfortable doing, please send your CV, certifications, references and rate per word for proofreading to [HIDDEN] Applications not indicating rate per word will be disregarded.
Should your contribution to this project be successful, you will be added to our linguists database. We have projects on a regular basis!

Thank you and we look forward to working with you!
