Job description:

Hello Malay/Indonesian/Thai/Mongolian linguists

I am looking for both translator and proofreader of the above languages to handle about 4000 words from English to these languages. This is a regular client. The text is a training material to sell a beverage product.

Payment is 30 days after receiving invoice, Paypal, Skrill, others, bank transfer or cheque. Please allow about 10 days from when the proofread version is sent off to client for feedback from their native sales people before invoicing. For the first job it can be shortened to 15 days if you really need the payment.

Price/quality will be considered to select and shortlist candidates.

First time candidates are expected to take a test of approximately 350 words if needed.

The most crucial thing for candidates is to always understand English language and culture to be able to extract the correct meaning meant in a particular context, not necessarily a meaning in dictionary/google/Trados memories, from experience, advised by someone, or even the meaning in other parts of the same text.

Skillful wording in Target language is needed to relay all parts of English, as opposed to simplifying meanings or adding extra meanings when the source text isn’t straightforward.

Translation is expected to be comprehensive, accurate, fluent and consistent.

If candidates are not full-time translators they should ensure adequate time for this project to avoid combining their full time jobs with this project.

You can Viber, What'sUp or CV me 0044 79 08 780 426 if you need and before the job goes ahead I will speak personally with the successful candidate as I have always done so in the past.
