Background and objectives
Under the direction of a member of the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) team, five volunteers are sought who, for a period of 3 months can translate to Chinese around 10 articles that have been or will be published in our website. Each article has or will have a length of 500-700 words. The translation should be consistent and follow the guidelines and standards used at the United Nations. The online volunteer translators will ensure that the Chinese language versions of the articles mirror the English language original ones.
Translation and interpretation
The United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) is an initiative that aligns institutions of higher education with the United Nations in supporting and contributing to the realization of United Nations goals and mandates, including the promotion and protection of human rights, access to education, sustainability and conflict resolution. There are over 1230 member institutions in more than 125 countries that reach millions of people in the education and research sectors around the world. The online volunteers' contribution will ensure the proper delivery of information about this initiative to those who speak Chinese.
Volunteers: 5 needed
1-5 hours per week / 12 weeks
Each online volunteer should be a native speaker of Chinese with experience translating professional-level publications from English into his or her native language. Academic background and work experience in international affairs is optional, but will be considered an asset. Applicants may be asked to translate a short paragraph as part of the selection process.

Most organizations find the volunteers they need within just a few days and close the opportunities to more applications. So if you see a project that interests you, apply right away and make sure that you show the organization that you have the right skills and motivation for the task!

Online volunteering is rewarding and empowering, but it’s also a serious commitment. When you are chosen for an assignment, the organization is counting on you to complete it.

Our online volunteer community is made up of bright, dynamic, committed individuals who enjoy bringing out the best in each other and in the organizations they serve. We expect all volunteers to maintain high standards of behaviour, and to refrain from any activity that could be detrimental to the assignment, the organization, other volunteers, or to UNV. By registering you accept that you do not make any financial claims to organizations or to UNV. See the Terms of Use for more about standards of conduct and the conditions for using this platform.
