Language research project for Swedish speakers at Lionbridge

Posted 10 months ago

Hello,

We are currently looking for participants for two Language Research Projects that requires native Swedish speakers, one for adults (age 18+) and one for minors (age 3-15). We hope that you are interested in cooperating with us on one or both projects.

The goal of our language research projects is to aid in the development of speech recognition technology for the Swedish language. 

The tasks are simple and do not require any specific or previous experience.

It is required that you are a native speaker. However, participants can be located anywhere in the world as the tasks can be done easily from home. You are required to have either an Android phone, or Android tablet. Alternatively, you may also use any computer with Chrome browser, an internet connection, and a quiet space to make your recordings. Unfortunately, this means that you are unable to complete this task using an iOS device.

Here all the projects details:

Language Research through Images Project (participant’s age 18+):

The duration of the task is approximately between 4 and 5 hours with a stable internet connection.

Rate: 70 USD after completing the entire task

Once the registration form has been completed, our production team will contact you with additional details and instructions.  

Both projects have started and we are looking for several hundred of participants for each task.

We would greatly appreciate your participation, and we urge you to share it with your friends and family that also speak this language on a native level.

If you are interested in helping us find participants for the Language Research Children, please note we would compensate you for your recruitment efforts via PayPal or Bank Transfer. For each person you bring into the project that successfully completes the task and indicates your name in the registration form we offer to you a compensation.
