About the Company

We are a financial advisory website operating out of Southeast Asia. We require a freelance writer/ translator to translate existing English articles/ content to Tagalog for our upcoming Philippines website.

Job Description

We want a database of short financial advice articles quickly translated to Tagalog and localised to suit Filipino consumers.

The details of the job are as follows:

1) Article length: ~250-500 words per piece
2) Content: Simple financial advice for consumers of all levels of financial understanding.
3) Work parcel: 5 short articles @ USD50.00
4) Deadline: 1-2 days per parcel
5) Further work availability: Up to 15 additional parcels upon satisfactory completion.
6) Opportunity for permanent engagement: additional translation/ rewriting work (1 article every 1-2 weeks) at much higher rate.

We want the site's content to be succinct, and simple to understand. It should appeal to consumers of any level of financial understanding. Minor rewriting may be needed to address cultural sensitivities and localise examples to fit local Philippines context. Figures of speech also need to be changed to local equivalents.

1) Fluent written Tagalog, excellent understanding of English
2) Have a basic understanding of financial products such as Credit Cards, Personal Loans, Home and Car Loans
3) Quick turnaround will be rewarded with the possibility of further work, increasing rates, and permanent engagement

How to apply:

Please respond to us with the following:
1) A translation of "A mortgage loan  is a loan used to buy houses and other properties"
2) Your usual/desired rate per 1000 words for further engagements with us.
