We're looking for someone who can help us with working up a corpus of Finnish utterances for our software to do its data mining on. The job can be reasonably done by someone who is simply familiar with their native language, or by a very skilled and confident translator (I do French, German and Russian myself, so I'm aware of the level of skill needed here) willing to work into a non-native language.
This is a paid opportunity, although the pay scale is *not* high.
There is a distinct possibility of far more lucrative work for someone qualified in the near future; we're bidding on a major contract with a Finnish company, and will need a Finnish expert on tap for that.
There is no requirement that the job be done in Canada. You'll be given a copy of the data and a deadline, and how you meet it is up to you. When you're done, you e-mail me the result (you need to have either Excel, OpenOffice's spreadsheet software, or some other Excel-compatible spreadsheet editor), along with a scanned or faxed copy of the Non-Disclosure Agreement, and I'll get the payment to you in some manner of your choice.
Please write to me at (cait AT evestech DOT com) if you are interested. This would be for immediate start.
