Auerbach International, a worldwide language translation firm, is writing to you with a special request. We are seeking bilingual English-Czech candidates who would like to earn $60 to take two 1.5-hour tests online. All candidates must be able to speak, read and understand English and Czech equally well.
The test content is exactly the same and is presented separately in each language. This research study is simply to determine that test takers understand the questions in English as well as they understand the questions in Czech.
The test is a personnel assessment tool used by companies in Europe to evaluate candidates’ suitability for specific jobs or areas of needed training. The purpose is for linguistic testing of each version, and is not about the test takers’ specific answers.
Our client compares and analyzes the responses of the English version to the responses of the Czech version. This analysis helps ensure that the translation is accurate and that no nuances skew the answers.
All responses remain confidential, and are seen only by our client’s research staff. Participants will receive instructions by email and take the assessments one at a time privately via the internet at a time that is convenient for them. The assessments are not timed and each version takes about an hour or so to complete. Both language versions, however, must be returned within three-four days.
I have attached a flyer that can be posted and/or distributed to your community members. If you have any further questions regarding the research study or our agency, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Participation is limited to 30 qualified candidates nationwide.
