French (Mauritius) linguists needed for Linguistic Validation Projects

Job posted at: Sep 18, 2019 10:20 GMT   (GMT: Sep 18, 2019 10:20)

Job type: Translation/editing/proofing job
Service required: Translation

Languages: English to French

Language variant: Mauritius

Job description:


I am Melanie Dufourd from the Vendor Relations’ team at RWS Life Sciences.

RWS Life Sciences is a preferred and leading provider of translations to the world’s top pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device companies. Our success and continual growth is directly related to our ability to recruit the highest quality translation experts available and foster prosperous relationships with each of them.

As part of our Linguistic Validations projects, we are responsible for testing the language used in patient questionnaires for large pharmaceutical companies in order to make sure the questions are understood by a native patient during a clinical trial.
We are currently seeking native French (Mauritius) translators to join our freelance translation team and work with us on current editing/localization projects of medical questionnaires related to clinical trials. The applicant must be native to Mauritius.

The harmonization of our medical questionnaire consists of; two translators who are native speakers of the target language, and who have subject matter expertise in the pertinent document, independently translate the document. After both translations are complete, the two translators compare their translations and produce a third translation jointly. This process of discussion and review is known as "harmonizing" and the resulting third translation is referred to as the "harmonized translation."

We are also looking for someone to recruit/interview (in person) French (Mauritius) speakers living in Mauritius.

If you are interested in in all or any of the above listed freelance positions could you please send me a copy of your CV and fill in the attached questionnaire (2 sheets) and contract*.
*the contract should be manually or electronically signed.

We look forward to the possibility of working with you

Kind regards,

Melanie Dufourd | Senior Vendor Relations Coordinator | RWS
