Background and objectives
The volunteer will be asked to translate texts from French into English. All communications between the volunteer and the organisation will be in English. The volunteer will be asked to translate two Powerpoint presentations (35-50 slides/presentation). The Powerpoint presentations are used for trainings on the topic of criminal forensics, so some experience with translating legal or scientific terms would be beneficial.
