Speaking two languages is an impressive skill — one that not everyone has.

And right now, if you’re a native Spanish speaker who also has a firm grasp on the English language, your skills can help make a little extra wiggle room in your budget with this awesome work-from-home opportunity!

Lionbridge, a company that provides organizations around the world with translation, development, language and testing solutions, is currently looking for native Spanish speakers to work part time as pronunciation validators.

As a pronunciation validator, you’ll review and edit audio reports generated by a speech recognition software and will listen to audio samples before rating the quality of the pronunciations.

You’ll work up to 24 hours each week, although hours will depend on the volume of work available. However, the hours you do work are completely flexible — you can choose when, where and how much you want to work!

To be considered for a position as a pronunciation validator, you must be at least 18 years old and able to pass a Spanish language skills test. A high school diploma is desired but not mandatory. You should, however, be proficient in English and Spanish grammar, spelling and punctuation.

A high-speed internet connection and personal computer are required.

There’s no information on pay or benefits included in the job listing, but we’ve reached out to the company and will update this post once we hear back.
