Welocalize is looking for Creative Language Specialists for Argentine Spanish with outstanding writing skills and creative minds to participate in a project that will help shape the future of chatbot technology in many languages.
Imagine first that you have some problem that you want to solve (maybe with your insurance, or with a retailer, or with an airline, etc).
You call the company’s customer support telephone line to get help and a computer chatbot answers. Here is where your work on this project would begin.
Your job will be to imagine a particular customer support situation and then write up examples of things you (and people you know) might say on the phone.
We call these statements utterances . For example, we may ask you to imagine that you want to change your flight for a trip you have already schedule.
We may also ask you to include a date in your utterance. You would then write up several different things you or someone might say in that situation.
Each one of the utterances you write would need to be different, using different kinds of words, different styles. Realism is critical.
When you write an utterance we want you to think about the kinds of references someone from your country would make. Specific companies, specific government entities, specific local currency, specific local slang, specific local brand names.
Ideal candidates should have the mindset of a playwright. You are imagining a setting, a place, a mindset. Then, you are imagining what a character in a play would say.
Maybe you start with yourself, and then imagine what your grandmother would say, and then what your teenage cousin would say.
