We are currently searching for native Russian speakers in TAMPERE, FINLAND, for our Russian Language Speech Collection project.
Task: You will be helping Lionbridge in collecting audio recordings involving natural and free-flowing conversations. All collected recordings will be used strictly for academic research purposes.
Who: We are looking for native Russian speakers to have multiple short conversations, in various room settings, in TAMPERE. The task will be done in groups of 2 or 3 with a pre-existing relationship, so please register your colleagues, friends and relatives. Please kindly note! All suggested partners need to complete the registration form and sign our Service Level Agreement. Kindly send a link to register to your partner(s).
Location: The recordings will be done in TAMPERE, in 3 different premises (a meeting room, a hotel room and a living room). The exact locations will be communicated to the selected participants.
Duration: Recordings will last in total 4.5 hours per venue, for a total of about 12 to 13 hours (including the setting up and practice time). To keep the conversation and the flow as fresh as possible, the sessions in each premise might be divided into 2 different sessions (6 to 9 visits might be needed). The recording sessions will be scattered over a period of 2 to 3 months.
The compensation: 30€ per hour. Payments will be made via bank transfer or via PayPal.
The conversations will be recorded by a Lionbridge moderator. Your identity will not be associated with the recordings and you should not discuss private topics or other people so that they could be identified.
Special precautions are followed due to Covid-19 and detailed instructions will be provided for selected participants before the first visit!

If you are selected, a Lionbridge representative will contact you via e-mail to agree on the best time and date for you to participate.
