Compensation and Project Size 

Translators are paid by the word as counted in the source text. Payment is USD $.0125 (1.25 cents) per word. Professional translators typically can translate 300 words per minute. For this project, we’re assuming a speed of 250 words per minute. Based on that speed, translators should be able to earn USD $3.12 per hour. Payment will be made once weekly via Skrill (https://www.skrill.com).  Sign up for Skrill at https://account.skrill.com/wallet/account/sign-up.Translators are paid once per week, usually on Fridays or Saturdays.  Payments are made via PayPal.  

How do I Get Hired?  

It's easy.   Please fill in the below short application.  The application includes a translation from you of a sample sentence in Hausa.  Please translate this sentence into Fulfulde.

Project Application

Some Fulfulde words translate the same no matter what region of West Africa a translator comes from.  But for other words, where a translator comes from can make a big difference on how a word or phrase gets translated.  For that reason, it would help us to know a bit more about where you have lived.  

Are you fluent in reading and writing Nigerian Fulfulde?
What is your gender?

Translation test

The below sentence is in Hausa language.  Please translate it into Nigerian Fulfulde (not English).  

Da Yusufu ya farka daga barci, sai ya bi umarnin mala'ikan Ubangiji, ya ɗauki matarsa.
