Translators without Borders (TWB) is a non-profit organization that provides people with access to vital information in a language they understand. TWB's mission is to increase access to critical knowledge using local languages, especially in the areas of health, human rights, and humanitarian response.
We are looking for speakers of Zulu, Oremiffa, Tigray and Kurmanji to volunteer for small translation projects we have received from different non-profit partners.
For Tigrinya we have received a request for a very short translation of a radio and TV health announcement for the World Health Organization, to inform local populations about how to prevent acute watery diarrhea.
We are also looking for (Sinjar) Kurdish Kurmanji volunteer transcribers and translators to participate in a pro-bono project for one of our non-profit partners, who is conducting interviews with female Iraqi refugees that have fled from ISIS.
For Zulu we have received a request for a short translation of a children's coloring book for the Sentinel Project, a small no-profit organization working on improving access to treatment for pediatric tuberculosis. The book will be used during an event in Durban, South Africa on world TB day.
If you're interested in this project and would like to take part of it, please sign up here: https://translatorswithoutborders.org/volunteer/translators/ and we will get back to you in 3 working day. Please don't forget to spread the word with your network of colleagues and friends.
If you have any question, please contact us at [HIDDEN]
We look forward to seeing you on the team.
