Volunteer Translators Needed
Wild Welfare is looking for volunteer professional translators or native/proficient speakers, to help expand the languages it can offer across its variety of animal welfare resources.
If you are a native speaker or are proficient in Japanese, Spanish or Thai, and can help us translate simple documents from English into any of those languages, then we would love to hear from you.
**UPDATE 6TH APRIL: We have been overwhelmed with fantastic offers of help from Spanish speakers, but are still looking for Japanese and Thai speakers and are also keen for any Korean speakers to help us.**
By volunteering your time you will be helping us bring animal care and welfare knowledge to animal care staff in more countries around the world and be contributing to the improvement of animal welfare across the globe.
Volunteers must ideally:
- Be able to work from home and communicate with a Wild Welfare team member over email and Zoom at mutually suitable times.
- Have a computer to be able to receive and return Microsoft Office documents (Word, PowerPoint etc), for the purpose of translations.
- Be able to commit to a minimum of 1-2 hours per week for one month.
Knowledge of the terms and vocabulary associated with wild animals and wildlife care would be helpful but is not essential.
If you are able to help us, or perhaps you know someone that might be interested, please message us or email Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are so lucky to have a number of people helping us already with translations – a big thank you to you all – but we need more of you, so please get in touch if you can help.
The demand for our animal welfare resources is even greater than normal at the moment, as COVID-19 affects our travel to projects and we push things forward with virtual and online methods instead.
Wild Welfare works in more than ten countries around the world, training and assisting individuals and facilities on animal welfare projects that improve welfare for captive wildlife. From India to Indonesia and from Pakistan to the Philippines, we already work with a huge range of different cultures and languages and this is expanding all the time.
