Hello, my name is Vanesa and I would like to gain some experience by doing voluntary work.
I have searched the web but couldn´t find any organization. Can you recommend a site?
Thank you very much.

Hello Vanessa,

Ashoka is an organization that supports what it calls "social entrepreneurs", that is people who create programs designed to make positive social changes. I have no connection with the organization, but I have heard good things about it. They seek volunteers, including translators. You probably should start at the home page to learn about the organization. Then you can go to their volunteer page which is www. ashoka.org/involved/volunteer.cfm.

Hi,

just found this one. They are working mainly in the Americas and are looking for volunteers in various fields. Here's an extract from their website:

Examples of typical assignments include:

Receptionist
Data Entry
Publications/Materials Development
Grant Research/Proposal Writing
Written Translation (English, Spanish, Portuguese)
Interpretation (English, Spanish, Portuguese) - Certification Required
Special Events Organization
Program Coordination
Partnership Strengthening

I don't know them but it seems to be an honest organization.

Good luck!

Charlotte

Kidlink - www.kidlink.org

Translation of web pages for children (mostly into Spanish and other languages). A good way to practice translating HTML files and have your work published on the web.
