Hi all- we got this in our in-box today (posted by Amy/UHRP):


I hope you will share the following NFLC Contract Language Consultant Opportunities announcement with your members. I am hoping an administrator or moderator will post the ad in the forum section.

NFLC Contract Language Consultant Opportunities-Uyghur

The National Foreign Language Center (NFLC) at the University of Maryland is a research institute dedicated to promoting communication within the United States in languages other than English. We are currently working on a project that provides adult language learners with interactive online tools to reinforce their foreign language skills. We focus on less commonly taught languages. We are currently looking for several individuals to help us launch projects in the following language:

Minimum Requirements:
Native, or near-native, proficiency in the target language
English proficiency
Ability to conduct Internet research and submit Word documents and/or audio files

Desired Qualifications:
Knowledge of ILR scale of language proficiency
Multiple choice item development experience

Specifically, we need educated native speakers of this language (or individuals with equivalent proficiency levels) to create online activities in their native languages using software we provide. In addition, we are looking for speakers to find authentic reading and audio passages, to record audio files, and to perform various editing tasks in these languages. The work is part-time, contractual, and most of the work can be done from your home computer. All candidates must have permission to work in the United States. If you are interested in working with us, or if you know a qualified candidate who would be interested in working with us, please contact the NFLC via email at recruitment@nflc.org and send your current resume or CV with Uyghur in the subject line. Thank you!
