    We are currently looking for people willing to write information on new cities to be displayed on the website.

    Job Title: EDITOR

    Location: no requirement: can be from home, you can manage your time.

    Package: 500 EUR for a whole city (about 50 small articles) - Work need to be done within 50 days. See template in any city with sections/sub-sections.

    Position Description:
    Each city follows a specific template that you can find on any city, e.g.: http://www.easyexpat.com/brussels_en.htm
    Each article in each section must be international oriented (we are not talking to American only or French only for example - albeit you can put specific information only relevant to the language or nationals, e.g. French insurance coverage in French...etc).
    Information can be easily found on the web. However each article must be original (i.e. ABSOLUTELY NO copy/paste) and the best way of doing that is to cross check several source of information.

    List of cities to be covered are:
    Moscow, Seoul, Vienna, Oslo, Munich, Luxembourg, Mexico, Miami, Zurich, Taipei, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Auckland, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Istanbul.

    As often as possible, provide sources, useful links.

    Write in English.
    - Incumbent will edit city articles and related documents for accuracy and stylistic consistency;
    - proofread for style, spelling and precise formatting;
    - rewrite complex, technical sections so that they are accessible to English as a Second Language (ESL) readers and laypersons;
    - assist in updating city articles: add new and revised versions as needed;
    - update articles with the latest data for use in proofreading and fact-checking;
    - provide progress reports.

    Experience Required:
    - Ideally a graduate candidate (or erasmus student or intern who needs extra money) with 2 languages (one of them being English + either French, German, Italian, Spanish) who spent/is spending time abroad;
    - demonstrated editing and writing abilities;
    - familiarity in web search, getting information on the internet and with good written communication skills.

    Attention: The final document should be on a HTML form (using tags <h2> or <h3> in titles, etc... I recommend using dreamweaver on any similar text editor that display clean html tags (i.e. not Frontpage), you can get a free copy of it on the Internet and it makes the text formating really easy).

    Please contact our team [REF JOBEE262] with your motivation, availability, questions.
