Carnegie Council Looking for Volunteer Translators from English into Chinese, French, Russian, and Spanish
The Mission of Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is to enlarge the global audience for the simple but powerful message that ethics matter, regardless of place, origin, or belief. They are looking for volunteers to translate selected texts into Chinese (simplified form), French, Russian, and Spanish. Translators should work in teams of two. Find a partner, or ask the Carnegie Council to help you connect with one. They are also looking for volunteer reviewers to review the finished translations. So each text will be worked on by three people. Translators and reviewers should be fluent in the written target language and in written English. It would be helpful to have prior experience doing translations and a good knowledge of international relations. All volunteers will be listed on the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs website, with a photo (optional) and short personal profile.
