Job: Year contract for translation and interpreting (still more languages)

Job type: Translation/editing/proofing job

Languages: English to Cornish, English to Welsh, English to Danish, English to German, English to Dutch, English to Greek, English to Finnish, English to Icelandic, English to Macedonian, English to Norwegian, English to Polish, English to Swedish

Job description:

We need to hire a new team of translators and interpreters in the following languages (to and from English) for a potential year contract starting in March.

We will need quotes for both consecutive and simultaneous interpretation and written translation. The language combination is “local language <–> English”, both ways. The interpreters should be stationed at the language country; all travelling expenses within the country will be covered if needed, so only provide your prices for your linguistic services.

As we are looking at a long term project, please provide the best prices valid for the 12-month period of March 1, 2009 through March 1, 2010. We still are not sure of the volume of work to be expected in each language.

State if you are a translator, an interpreter (consecutive? Simultaneous?) or both.

Clearly state your rates in US dollars only, in each case.

Our clients are usually in need of linguists who are familiar with technical vocabulary (sciences, energy, nuclear energy, defense, engineering, etc.).

Middle Eastern Languages: Arabic, Hebrew
Indo-European: Assamese, Bengali, Bihari, Gujarati, Hindi, Kashmiri, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Pali, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Sinhalese, Sindhi, Urdu
Iranian: Baluchi, Kurdish, Pashto, Persian/Farsi, Tajik
European: Hungarian, Estonian, Finnish, Ingrian, Karelian, Livonian, Cornish, Welsh, Icelandic, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Elfdalian, German, Dutch, Greek, Polish, Macedonian, English, French, Spanish, Italian
South/Central American: Spanish, Portuguese
Asian: Turkish, Mongolian, Burmese, Kiranti, Mizo, Nepal, Tibetan, Hkamti, Lao, Thai, Vietnamese, Khasi, Khmer, Mon, Kuy, Nicobarese
African: all Afro-Asiatic, Nilo-Saharn and Niger-Congo, Khosian

Please QUOTE VIA PROZ, email quotes will NOT be considered.

Also advise whom we can contact to obtain your references including their email IDs

Given the large number of language combinations I am afraid we will not be able to revert to all colleagues, and will only be contacting selected candidates, so thank you in advance for your time in quoting.

Translators that have already worked with me are welcome to quote for this too, including the additional services (simultaneous and consecutive interpreting).
