Sex Addicts Anonymous is a Twelve-Step fellowship based on the steps and traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. We are a fellowship of men and women dedicated to ending our compulsive sexual behavior.
We are seeking to have our basic text, commonly referred to as "The Green Book," translated. It can be found in read-only format at: https://saa-recovery.org/SAALiterature/English/SAABook/.
For this job, you will need to work with volunteer members over an extended period of time. This is done so that the precision of the "program speak" can be retained and potential language blunders, such as double entendres, can be avoided.
Membership in Sex Addicts Anonymous or another twelve-step program is not necessary, but may be beneficial.

Sex addiction is a disease affecting the mind, body, and spirit. It is
progressive, with the behavior and its consequences usually becoming
more severe over time. We experience it as compulsion, which is an urge
that is stronger than our will to resist, and as obsession, which is a mental
preoccupation with sexual behavior and fantasies. In SAA, we have come
to call our addictive sexual behavior acting out.
