We are looking for:
Transliterators to romanize given texts. You will be given a word in Urdu and you have to write the same non latin word in English transcription. Like how the word is pronounced in Urdu, the same pronunciation should be written in English.
- Expected time/word - 15 to 20seconds per word
- Quality Expectation - 98%+ (Based on a sample of 3%)
- Budget - Rs 1/word or Rs 150-200/Hours (Average time/word should not exceed 20 seconds)
Rules to follow:
- Prefer commonly used transliteration to an accurate phonetic representation. For example, the romanization of "कम्प्यूटर" or "കമ്പ്യൂട്ടർ" is "computer" and not "kampyootar".
- In particular, English origin words should use the correct English spelling. For example: ടെന്നീസ്- Tennis but not Tennees
- Please ensure that the correct spelling is used for words that are only spelled one way, or the most common/natural spelling for others.
- Please indicate if, in case, the native word is broken or spelling is wrong. (use comment section - usage expected to be minimal)
- Capitalization is not critical
