My application for Language Moderator post for Nigerian languages (Yoruba, Pidgin, and Hausa)

in davinci-application •  10 months ago


Introduction in English

I am Taofeek Lateef, a 24 years old MSc. microbiology graduate from Nigeria. I currently own a poultry farm amidst other investments. I am a hardworking, reliable, and motivated individual.

I am applying for the role of Language Moderator for Nigerian Languages (Yoruba, Pidgin, and Hausa). The reason I sought for this post is to help projects reach a huge amount of audience while maintaining the high quality translations at the same time. I believe that projects will reach a wide audience if the projects can be available in the audience native language.

My experience as a moderator in the translation category before it was suspended due to abuse and my current experience as a moderator in Utopian presently means

  • I am not a stranger to quality
  • I have a good grasp of the English language and Nigerian (Yoruba, Pidgin, and Hausa) languages.
  • I am able to manage a team and interact with a team
  • I am very fluent in my native language coupled with the ability to read and write in it.

I am a current moderator and a contributor at the same time in Utopian. This shows I have experience in both roles. You can check here here

I will be majoring only in Yoruba language as it is the most common in Nigeria and since translation category is just coming back.
