Volunteer Translation

Volunteer translation is a great way for both new and seasoned translators to gain experience, get their foot in the door, and contribute to a good cause. Many fellow translators are probably aware of some way to volunteer in this way. I will list some of the bigger organizations that require volunteer translation.

  1. Translators without Borders
    As stated on its page, this organization “facilitates the transfer of knowledge from one language to another by creating and managing a community of NGOs who need translations and professional, vetted translators who volunteer their time to help.”
  2. Kiva
    This organization enables microloans to people in developing countries.
  3. The Rosetta Foundation (not affiliated with Rosetta Stone)
    Similarly to TwB, this organization provides translation for NGOs.
