We are looking for an Arabic Linguist for a project that is currently in progress and is expected to continue through at least February 2021


The work requires an Arabic linguist (any dialect) to collate a list of “offensive” Arabic terms and then to review the existing Thesaurus for any word pairings that include those terms and to remove any potentially offensive word pairings. Some basic computational skills are required, but this aspect is well-supported by the project supervisors, so the main requirement is NS linguistics. Effort-wise, it will require 30-40 hours per week for approx. 3 weeks, starting as soon as possible.



  • Native Arabic speaker
  • Bachelors Degree in Linguistics, or related 
  • Fomal Linguistics experience
  • Amenable to work remote for 30-40 hours weekly for 2 months, approximately 3 weeks starting asap
