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.
- 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.”
This organization enables microloans to people in developing countries.
- The Rosetta Foundation (not affiliated with Rosetta Stone)
Similarly to TwB, this organization provides translation for NGOs.
