Jurgen Wattmann is looking for a language expert to create a language for a comic series set in an urban fantasy world. The language itself should not be created from scratch, but will be derived instead from Uto-Aztecan stock. The employer possesses relevant information and will share it with the chosen applicant.
The job itself consists of:

  • A full conlang derived from an existing Uto-Aztecan language, with a complete grammatical description and about 500 words of vocabulary;
  • Translating texts for the comic book series. A first translation job of moderate length (no more than 1000 words) is included in this project. As this is a series, the employer may contact the language creator for additional translation work. This is not part of this project and compensation for it should be negotiated separately.

All material should use the Latin alphabet. There is no script needed.
