You can earn up to $25 an hour training AI to write better in other languages


A great opportunity is available for writers who are interested in AI and other languages. Scale AI, a data-labeling company, is seeking writers to train generative AI models to become better writers in various languages, including Spanish, Mandarin, German, Vietnamese, Persian, and Swedish. The job listing states that writers will work on open projects for the language they're hired for, which includes tasks such as ranking AI model responses, writing short stories on a topic, and checking the factual accuracy of text produced by an AI model. 

Ideal candidates would have a professional background in translation or experience writing professionally as a copywriter, journalist, or technical writer. However, individuals who have completed or are currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree in the humanities or writing fields can also apply. The position is remote with flexible hours, but a minimum of 20 hours a week is required. The earnings vary based on the listings, but writers can earn up to $25 an hour. The job description for a Spanish writer, for instance, states that Spanish experts in Spain can make $18.50 an hour, while US-based candidates can make $25 an hour based on experience. 

The position involves contracting with a Scale AI affiliate, and AI companies have been known to rely on armies of data-labeling contractors to improve their large-language models. OpenAI, for example, reportedly hired around 1,000 contractors worldwide in late 2022 to improve its GPT AI model. Contractors at Invisible Technologies, a firm that works with OpenAI, work to GPT's code, communicate not say certain things, according to Insider's Aaron Mok.
