Recruiting Organization: Empowered Birth Movement e.V.

About Us:

Empowered Birth Movement e.V. is an independent nonprofit organization tackling maternal and neonatal health inequities through a Systems Thinking and intersectional justice lens.

Our mission is to reduce maternal health inequities by advancing community-oriented, peer-to-peer support and information throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. We want to make sure this support/information is not only accessible and affordable, but also reflects the linguistic and cultural diversity of the country.

About the Role:

Translators are a very important part of our team! Primary responsibilities include:

  • Translating Fact Sheets (1-2 pages, simple language on maternal health topic or health laws/entitlements) from English/German to target language.
  • Time commitment: we are estimating one Fact Sheet per month.
  • Occasional translation of social media/website content, if the translator has the capacity (German/Turkish speaker).


Translators should have a background in the field of translation/interpretation, medicine, public health, law, or similar.

They should have:

  • Excellent written communication skills in English AND a native speaker of another language such as: German, Ukrainian, Russian, Spanish, French, Arabic, Pashto, Urdu, Turkish, Hindi, Japanese. Additional languages outside of this list are also valued.
  • Experience, education, or training as a translator/interpreter with a general understanding of maternal/newborn health and legal topics.


The role is able to be completed remotely from anywhere in the world. We are a recently-founded, volunteer-run organization so of course, every team member is very important -- we want to make joining our team worth your time. Please include in your email what you hope to gain from this volunteer position so we can make it work for you!
