Translation French to English of travel guide focusing on Algeria's Islamic heritage
Museum With No Frontiers has set up the first and so far, only multi-national online museum with the specific purpose of using better knowledge of art and cultural heritage to facilitate mutual understanding between cultures. Since 2011 our team is composed by volunteers only. Thanks to the help and cooperation of highly competent and enthusiastic people from all around the world, we are able to add a lot of new contents every year and create new opportunities to explore the material contributed by our Partners. For further details please refer to our homepage: www.museumwnf.org
One of our major project is the series of thematic travel guides 'Islamic Art in the Mediterranean' including so far eleven titles: http://books.museumwnf.net/books.php?id=tcat All titles - except Algeria - are available in English, French, Italian and Spanish; some also in Arabic, Portuguese and Turkish. Unfortunately the photographic campaign for the Algerian title could never be completed and the guide is available for free download as a provisional publication only. Please click here to view the book in French: http://www.museumwnf.org/images/full/books/40/fr/31/book/sample.pdf
During the last three years the Algerian title became very popular and many people are asking whether it is available in English. Thus, we decided that we would try to find a person who accepts to help us with the translation. We are speaking of about 250 pages, including also some images. The translation requires accurate comparison with the specific terminology used on our website.
Regarding timing we are flexible and can adapt to the volunteers’ possibilities. Ideally we would like to present the new title - always for free download - on the occasion of the World Heritage Day 2022 (18 April 2022).
About Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF)
Markgraf Ruediger Gasse 6, 1015, Vienna, Vienna 1090 Vienna, Austria, AT
Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF) builds bridges through knowledge and understanding. MWNF has 20 years of experience in "rewriting history" beyond narrow nationalist agendas and promoting a new, inclusive vision of history that highlights exchanges and cooperation between cultures in areas as diverse as archaeology, art and culture, economy and social life. Against the backdrop of contemporary global challenges and conflicts, MWNF projects demonstrate the far-reaching potential of cultural heritage in building intercultural bridges in the name of peace.
Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF) was founded in 1994. Since the beginning, the idea was to overcome any kind of conventional 'boarder' and to create an exhibition space where well-known and unknown, small and large, secure and insecure, rich and poor could not only coexist but would complement each other, generating mutual benefit for all concerned.
The MWNF program is built around two main activities: the MWNF Virtual Museum including different thematic sections and the MWNF travel guides, focusing on little known aspects of cultural heritage.
MWNF is an independent non-profit organization, relying mainly on volunteer resources. The legal seat is established in Vienna, Austria.
The network set up by MWNF includes public and private Partners from all around the world.

This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
