Global: Call for Online Volunteer Translator

66 out of 100 hours filled

About this need

Bilingual or multilingual people can sign up to volunteer their language skills on Tarjimly (Mobile App). We're a tech nonprofit that connects refugees to translators on-demand, and we are looking for volunteers to sign up in every language. The refugee/migrant crisis is not getting better and millions of people in need of humanitarian assistance are struggling with language barriers. By signing up as a volunteer translator on Tarjimly, people can volunteer from their phones no matter where they are how much time they have. There have been thousands of seemingly small but incredibly important scenarios that other volunteers have helped with, like translating directions for a family that's settling into a new Greek neighborhood, or common phrases to know in Spanish or explaining to a German medic that a child is allergic to a medication, etc. All volunteers need to do is download the app, select what languages they can speak, read, and/or write, and mark what times they are generally available. Then, when a refugee makes a request that fits your profile, we send a phone notification asking if you're available. You can mark yes/no on your availability each time, so there is no hard time commitment.
