Hiring Translators!

Are you a fluent speaker of an Indigenous language, or do you know someone in your community who is a fluent speaker or a language teacher? Native Land Digital is hiring for Indigenous language translation work! 

At Native Land, we are striving to get as many Indigenous language translations of the front page of our website as possible. To us, it’s very important that Indigenous languages are represented and visible, and we want to include YOUR community’s language!

To qualify, you will need to demonstrate some knowledge of your language, traditional territory, or community. We would love to hear from you if you would like to help us increase the exposure of Indigenous languages on the web! 

To visit our website, please go to www.native-land.ca.  Please note that we are offering a set rate for the required translation, approximately 150 words in length. Translation does not have to be perfect, since numerous terms may not have direct translations.

Please contact Christine McRae, Executive Director of Native Land, at christine@native-land.ca to apply.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
