I wanted to reach out to you to see if you have any one that would be interested in becoming a freelance interpreter for Creole with us. Lionbridge is one of the largest language service companies in the world and we work with many different types of contracts. We have a large need for Creole interpreters because of many new large contracts increasing the amount of Creole calls. We have two major government contracts with the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Costume Enforcement, and also have many community based contacts!
There are a few contract requirements for the different opportunities and they are the following:
1) U.S. citizen or permanent resident with a green card
2) Have lived in the U.S. for three of the last five years (DHS and ICE requirement)
3) Be willing to undergo a basic security clearance background check (DHS and ICE government contracts)
4) Pass a language assessment (English/Creole)
5) Landline Phone or internet based phone (willing to get one if you do not have one already )
Would you or someone you know be interested in the opportunity and if so would you be free to speak one day this week about the opportunity? Please let me know the best day, time, and number to reach you on. If you would like to look more in detail about Lionbridge our website is https://interpretation.lionbridge.com/.
Thank you so much for your interest in Lionbridge and I truly look forward to hearing from you!
Thanks for contacting me. Unfortunately, I do not specialize in Creole language, but the history of free people of color (in Mobile and Baldwin counties, Alabama, which includes creoles of color.) I will forward your information to others.
