CAREERS

Language Consultant – Hebrew – United Kingdom at What3Words
United Kingdom

We are looking for native speakers of Hebrew to help us localise our product.

 

We are currently working to launch a Hebrew version of our map, so that every 3m x 3m of the globe will have its own unique 3 word address in your language. The job comprises two main phases:

  1. making sure that the best, most common words in your language are used, and
  2. making sure that no unsuitable words end up in the 3 word addresses.

Requirements

No specific qualifications are required, although we are looking for people who are passionate about language (the sort of people who love their language and pride themselves on their spelling and vocabulary skills!) and are confident in discussing it in English.

Before expressing your interest in our project, please familiarise yourself with our website thoroughly and explore our map. We’d love to hear what you think of what3words as well as what your English 3 word address at home is (you can find this on our map at https://map.what3words.com – the search bar accepts usual street addresses as well as 3 word addresses).

 

Work: freelance from home (computer and internet access needed)

Hours: typically around 5-10 hours/week but can be tailored to your particular circumstances

Duration: 4 months in total from commencement of project

The deadline for applying to the role is Sunday 16 September.

Benefits

what3words is a global addressing company that has given every 3m x 3m square on the planet an address of 3 random words – for example, the main entrance of our London office is located at ///filled.count.soap. 3 word addresses are more accurate than street addresses or postcodes, but much easier to remember and communicate than 16 digit lat-long coordinates.
