Data Research Projects

Lionbridge are currently resourcing two Data Research Projects that requires native Norwegian speakers, one for adults (age 18+) and one for minors (namely participants under age 18).

Students may apply as well and of course colleagues, any retired university personnel or otherwise interested person who has the needed language proficiency.

The purpose of these projects is to improve speech recognition technology developing, in this way, a safer environment especially for the younger users. 

The tasks are simple and do not require any specific or previous experience. The goal is simply to record own voice while reading out loud randomized sentences in Norwegian. 

Participants can be located anywhere as the tasks can be done easily from home, using a mobile device (phone/tablet Android) or a computer with Chrome with any microphone. Unfortunately, iPhone and iPad cannot be used for this task. Being a native speaker of Norwegian is a key requirement.

The duration of the task is approximately 30 minutes

Rate: 16 USD after completing the entire task

The payment will be done by PayPal (or Gift Card of different providers)
