Task
Background and objectives
Requirements
Prison Insider, the information site on prisons throughout the world, is seeking the support of online volunteers to translate from English into Dutch the report on prison conditions in Holland (around 13,000 words). Due to its length, we plan to involve four volunteers for the translation, and one volunteer for the proofreading/harmonization. The name of the translators will appear on our website. Online collaboration by e-mail.

Translation and interpretation
Prison Insider aims to raise awareness about detention conditions and uphold the rights and dignity of those deprived of freedom throughout the world. A prisoner’s fate is very different depending on the country in which they are imprisoned. Incarceration levels, suicide rates, instances of inhuman and degrading treatment, quality of facilities, ability to maintain family ties, medical treatment, legal support, education, work and training all impact heavily on the daily lives of prisoners. We should all understand how punishment is being carried out in our name; every society needs an accurate picture of its prisons to prevent violence and injustice.
Volunteers: 5 needed
6-10 hours per week / 4 weeks
Dutch native language; good writing skills; good knowledge of English.
