Malay and Indonesian translators needed

I’m in the final stages of a MFA screenwriting program in the Radio Television Film department here at UT. For my internship I’m writing for a video game development company called Spacetime Studios. We’re looking for native speakers of a number of languages for translation jobs on a contract basis. The content is all video game marketing material geared toward prospective consumers. I can serve as the initial contact point for interested bilingual people – fluent English plus one or more other language(s). The languages we need most right now are Malay and Indonesian, but we’re interested in building a pool of resumes. The work pays $15 per hour and is all done remotely via email. Would you please forward this request to any potentially interested people?

Thank you much.
