The Rosetta Project is a global collaboration of language specialists and native speakers working to build a publicly accessible online archive for all documented human languages. We are looking for people to help with the core task of scanning and/or typing in existing materials on a wide variety of languages of the world. Our goal is to put together the most broad and complete reference work on the languages of the world to date - a reference work of relevance both to academic linguists and to endangered language communities.
After three years of collection and curation, the Rosetta online archive is already the largest descriptive linguistic resource on the Net. We currently serve over 30,000 text pages documenting writing systems, phonology, grammar, vernacular texts, core wordlists, numbering systems, maps, audio files, and demographic/historical descriptions for over 1,700 languages. A major sub-component of the Rosetta archive is the ALL Language Word List Database - a collection of 200 term core vocabulary lists for the languages of the world.
As an intern with Rosetta, you will be exposed to important works on an extremely wide variety of languages, and will have the opportunity to see what goes into developing and maintaining a large, on-line, digital archive as you participate in a history-making project. Internships are typically for 1-2 months. Full-time interns (32+ hours/week) have access to preferential housing/rent pricing in the Presidio of San Francisco, where our offices are located (ask for details if this is of interest to you). In general, the work needs to be done here in our offices (unless you want to take on a much larger commitment, in which case we can consider ways to set you up to work off-site).
