Language Consultant – Bosnian at What3Words
London, GB

We are looking for native speakers of Bosnian 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: https://what3words.com/, and follow the link to have a look at our map too.

We are currently working to launch a Bosnian 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 Bosnian 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)

Compensation and hours: £12 GBP per hour (or the equivalent in your local currency), typically around 5–10 hours/week but can be tailored to your particular circumstances

Duration: c. 3-4 months in total from commencement of project

 

The deadline for applying to the role is Sunday 14 April, and successful candidates will start the project on Tuesday 23 April.

 

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. We’d love to hear what you think of what3words, including an example of when you think it might come in handy for you, and you’ll also be asked to upload a copy of your CV.
