Background and objectives
Requirements
Translating & Proofreading of the MyWorld Survey into Dhivehi from English. Two volunteers will be selected; one volunteer will be responsible for translating the document (~ 900 words) and another one will proofread the finished translation. The selected volunteers will be contacted by the Action Campaign as soon as they answer the opportunity. Then they will receive the document which they should either translate or proofread. If there are any questions they can be asked at that point.The MyWorld Survey asks citizens which of the Sustainable Development Goals are relevant to their personal situation and how they perceive the implementation. A big part of the translation is translating the SDGs and their subgoals. Through the survey, millions of people have casted their vote to tell world leaders their most pressing issues. However, the work would have not been possible without our volunteers. Now, we would like to welcome you to be part of the team!
MY World is the UN survey that asks citizens if they are aware of the Sustainable Development Goals, which six of the 17 Global Goals are of immediate concern to them and if the situation of these has got better, stayed the same or got worse over the past 12 months. So by helping us to translate it, you'll enable more people to make their voices heard.
Volunteers can read and understand English, and are native or fluent on a professional level in Dhivehi. Experience in translation preferred. Please upload your CV.
