Language Consultant – Urdu – United Kingdom at What3Words
United Kingdom

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

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, 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. Please read more here:, and do follow the links to have a look at our map too.

We are currently working to launch an Urdu 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 focuses on two main areas:

1) making sure that the best, most common words in your language are used, and

2) making sure that there are no unsuitable words in the 3 word addresses.


Work: Freelance from home (computer and internet access needed).

Duration: Initially 3 hours of training, and if training is successful then 3 months from completion of training.

Successful candidates will be accepted for 3 hours of remote, online project training (paid). If successful with the training, then they will be offered further work for up to 3 months.


No specific qualifications are required, although it is helpful if you are passionate about language and/or technology, and can confidently communicate in English (all communication will be in English).
