Gengo is a crowdsourced translation and AI data platform founded in 2008 and headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. In January 2019, we were acquired by Lionbridge Technologies and the AI side of business has already been rebranded to Lionbridge AI.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
We’re teaming up with a research institute in Japan for a new and exciting voice recording project! We require native and non-native English speakers to record themselves speaking short sentences based on a script. The output will be used to improve the accuracy of a voice-translation app in the run-up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
– Have a good command of written and spoken English
– Have access to an Android phone and be able to download an app from Google Play
– Record yourself using the app
– Total estimated time: 1.5 to 2 hrs
HOW IT WORKS
Gengo may take up to 3 weeks to review the quality of submitted recordings. Provided recordings adhere to the project guidelines, payments will be issued via Paypal or Payoneer. Detailed instructions will be provided once participants submit their work.
