Persian, Italian and Greek translators & proofreaders
Translation Commons is currently in need of experienced (5+ years) volunteers to translate and proofread short articles and videos from English into Persian, Italian and Greek. Medical or technical translation experience preferred but not required.
The materials available for translation & proofreading are going to be used by a community of makers who are building PPE and other materials to combat COVID-19 spread in places where these supplies are scarce or non-existent.
This is a great opportunity for both less experienced translators wanting to gain experience, and more experienced professionals hoping to contribute to an international volunteering organization. Other advantages are:
- Collaborating with your peers on community projects you feel passionate about
- Developing new skills
- Accelerating your career
- Expanding your professional network
- Learning from experts and forge strong professional relationships
Please visit our website to register as a volunteer. You can get more info about Translation Commons and our current openings.

We believe in the power of language to... - share knowledge and sustain cultures, - change the lives of our volunteers, - provide professional opportunities.
Translation Commons is a non-profit volunteer community of language lovers, professionals and technologists. We provide a roadmap and create resources for a digital ecosystem where all languages have equal access and speakers can pursue educational, cultural and economic opportunities.
We are partners to the International Year of Indigenous Languages, a UNESCO initiative, and are creating resources for the International Decade of Indigenous Languages, 2022-2032, making language rights a reality for all people! Our Language Digitization Initiative is enabling many languages to get their script online and partake to digital opportunities.
Our volunteers are the heart and soul of our community. Their passion for language and their expertise in technology are the cornerstones of all our initiatives. Our activities are centered around career paths that volunteers can engage, experience and practice.
Our platform offers over 40 free language related tools. Our courses and resources include a variety of language topics, all created by our volunteers.
Our Covid-19 poster-maker is translated in over 350 languages and for the majority of these communities, our poster is the only Covid-19 information available in their language. Our volunteers also offer their help to other organizations responding to the Covid-19 crisis.
