Hi everyone!
Someone once mentioned this group in a forum as a great organization to work for but when I went to their website the e-mail link didn't work (whether it's their technical glitch or mine remains to be seen). Anyway, I'd love to work with them and know that I need to send them a sample and maybe my CV but does anyone have their e-mail or anymore information. Thanks so much in advance!

Hi there,

I don't know about contacting them directly, but have worked for them through Eurotexte (in Paris) before. It's all been pro bono, by the way.

Let me know if you would like more information on Eurotexte.

Stephanie

I would love more information about them! I know that TWB work is pro-bono but I really want to be able to do something meaningful for someone else. Any more information you can provide would be fantastic! I'm sure others are interested as well!

Thanks!!

Lindsay

Only French<>English, right? Nov 5, 2004

Hi everyone!
I work in the EnglishSpanish pair and I also got interested in their work some time ago. Much to my regret I found out that they only take volunteers in the EnglishFrench pair. I think they're doing a really wonderful job and I'd love to be able to cooperate in any initiative of this kind where my services as an ENGSPA translator may be of use for similar purposes. Do you know of any other organization that may be in need of Spanish translators?
Thank you so much for your information!

I've also worked for them through Eurotexte in Paris (tsf@eurotexte.fr) and have found the work very interesting. For some projects there is a small budget (but the money isn't the point of this kind of work!).

Thanks. I actually have their website address but I couldn't that link that says "contact us" to open (the one which includes their e-mail). I don't know if it is my problem or the site's problem though. In any case, I did send an e-mail to the address that some kind person provided so now I guess I just wait for them to respond! Thanks again to everyone who helped!

The need for French - English is pressing Nov 5, 2004

But there is reason to believe it is not exclusive: http://www.tsf-twb.org/index-en.shtml (BTW, one of the volunteer testimonies quoted there is from a Prozian)

Following is the latest volunteer translator request letter from Mona Baker's "Resources for Translation Studies" website:

Announcement: Habitat International Coalition
Habitat International Coalition is a network of NGOs, social movements and local organizations working on habitat issues (forced evictions, land confiscation, social production of housing, environmental issues, women and housing/land rights). Its secretariat is in Chile and its President is Mexican, but it has regional and thematic offices all over the world. Communication is crucial in such a network, especially as members gain a lot in exchanging views and experiences. The coordination offices manage daily correspondence, but we lack the physical and technical capacity to have all documents and news posted on our websites systematically translated.

Receiving the support of volunteer translators would be extremely helpful to our work and that of the more than 400 local organizations that are our members. If you have translation skills, are interested in the economic, social and cultural issues relating to housing and human rights in general, and would like to cooperate with us to learn more about these matters, please contact me at mmignot@hlrn.org . We require a pool of volunteers and would be happy to work with students, particularly with languages such as English, Arabic, Spanish, French, Russian, and Portuguese.

Best wishes,

You may be able to find more by googling Spanish + "volunteer translators", but you'll get all sorts (I can't vouch for the humanitarian interest of some of them, while you may not personally agree with the principles of other non-lucrative or faith-based organizations, so I'll leave that to you).

Not a glitch.... Nov 9, 2004

...the link opens up an Outlook express email window with their address. If you don't have outlook hooked up, then the link will not open or you will have a window saying the default email has not been configured.
