Language Consultant - Slovene
Freelance part-time job opportunity for native speakers of SLOVENE
Street addresses aren’t accurate enough to specify precise locations, such as building entrances, and don’t exist for parks and many rural areas. This makes it hard to find places and prevents people from describing exactly where help is needed in an emergency.
what3words has given every 3m square on the planet an address of 3 random words – for example, our London office is located at ///filled.count.soap. what3words addresses are more accurate than street addresses or postcodes, but easy to remember and communicate. Please see https://what3words.com/ to learn more.
