Project Overview

A volunteer translator is needed to translate a human rights-related criminal complaint from English to French or German. The translator must be completely fluent in English and at least one of the other languages. Familiarity with legal terminology and concepts is optional but is a plus.
The volunteer translator will be provided with the English language text in a Word document, and will be required to return the translation by email. The translator must be able to start right away and work quickly. They must sign a non-disclosure agreement and keep their work confidential.
The criminal complaint pertains to an important, high profile, human rights-related matter. If you have the skills and are looking to make a difference, this project is for you.
