Freelance Call for Translators (Pre-qualification for Translation Services)

at TUMO Center for Creative Technologies in Yerevan

Project Description
Simonian Education Foundation is launching a pre-qualification call for the provision of translation services for School 42 content. 42 is a tuition free software engineering school with a revolutionary way of learning without teachers. The curriculum is 100% project based and students have to work in peer-to-peer fashion and review each other's projects. The students will be 18+ and have no knowledge of coding when they start the curriculum.

The team of translators, consisting of a team leader and two translators, will be asked to translate the curriculum. The team lead will be the point of contact with our team. In sprints of 2 weeks the team leader will send translations.There will be an internal review team that will review the translations and provide feedback to the team leader. The feedback will be used to revise the translation. A library of words will be kept to make sure the wording is consistent throughout all projects.
