Job description:

Hello Khmer linguists

I am looking for both Khmer translator and proofreader to handle about 4000 words from English to Khmer. 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. For the first job it can be shortened to 15 days if you really need the payment. Please allow about 10 days after the proofread version is finalised for feedback from Khmer sales people before invoicing.

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 dictionaries/google/Trados memories, from experience, advised by someone, or even the meaning in other parts of the same text.

Skilful wording in Target language is needed to relay the English text, as opposed to simplifying 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 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.

Looking forward to hearing from you

Best wishes, Nam Vo
