Language Consultant - Farsi (Iranian Persian) at what3words
London, GB
We are looking for native speakers of Farsi (Iranian Persian) to help us localise our product.

what3words is a global addressing company that has given every 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 see the map at https://what3words.com/ - you can click "About Us" in the top right corner to learn more about the company.

You may also be interested to watch this TED talk from our co-founder and CEO, Chris Sheldrick: https://www.ted.com/talks/chris_sheldrick_a_precis... and read a little more about one of our favourite ways what3words is used: https://what3words.com/partner/gatewayhealth/ (do watch the video at the bottom!).


We are currently working to launch a Farsi version of our map, so that every 3m square in 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 Farsi words are used, and

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


Full training will be provided.


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

Compensation & Duration: there will be c.4 hours of training to undertake in September, which is paid at a fee of £50 total (or local equivalent). If successful with the training, you will be offered further work for c.3 months. This is on a part-time basis, around 5-10 hours a week. The renumeration for this further work is £15 GBP per hour (or local equivalent).


The deadline for applying to the role is Thursday 3rd September, and successful candidates will start the project on Monday 7th September.

Requirements

No specific qualifications are required, although of course you must be a native speaker of the language, and pride yourself on your written and spelling skills! It is helpful if you are passionate about language and/or technology, and you must be able to communicate confidently in English.
