website. Lionbridge provides translation and localization solutions
that enable global companies to meet their customers’ linguistic and
technical requirements for a wide range of deliverables. For more
information, please visit www.lionbridge.com.
We are currently looking for Yiddish linguists for assignments with
one of our government clients. You must be a U.S. citizen to complete
this work, with demonstrated translation experience. Subject matter
may include narcotics, trafficking, credit card and bank fraud,
anti-corruption, intellectual property crimes, and general legal

Qualification for DOJ-CD includes some light paperwork and a
background investigation by the Department of Justice, including a
financial history check. You must be a U.S. citizen, and have lived in
the U.S. for at least three of the past five years.

A clearance is not necessary for work on this contract but it can help
to facilitate the qualification process.

Translation and proofreading rates are paid per source word (USD).
Translation files will be sent by email for the time being, so it is
important that you have a secure internet connection and do not share
the information with anyone.

Please let me know if you are interested or anyone you know of may be
interested in this opportunity, and I’d be happy to send the necessary

Thank you,
