Language Consultant – Kannada – London at What3Words
London, GB

We are looking for native speakers of Kannada 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: www.what3words.com/about, and do follow the links to have a look at our map too. You may also be interested in this example of a current project using our technology in South Africa: https://vimeo.com/207430031.

We are currently working to launch a Kannada 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 Kannada words 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: Successful candidates will be accepted for 3 hours of online project training (fully paid). If successful with the training, then they will be offered further work for up to 3 months, which will be on a part-time basis around 5-10 hours per week.

Requirements

No specific qualifications are required, although it is helpful if you are passionate about language and/or technology, and you must be able to communicate confidently in English.

If you are interested in working with us, please apply via the application options below – before expressing your interest in our project, please familiarise yourself with our website thoroughly and explore our map. You will be asked to include your thoughts on what3words in your cover letter, and to provide an English 3 word address at the Taj Mahal (you can find this on our map at https://map.what3words.com). Obviously, there will be lots of 3 word addresses at the Taj Mahal, so just choose one that you like!
