Task
Background and objectives
Requirements
The Online Volunteer will translate from Thai to English a short survey questionnaire developed for a UNDP-UNICEF joint research project taking a gender lens to youth entrepreneurship in South-East Asia. The Online Volunteer will translate the survey from Thai into English and tabulate the results clearly in an Excel spreadsheet. No data analysis is required. The content to be translated is a short survey of approximately 15 questions. The majority of the survey questions are multiple choice and a small number are open-ended short text responses. The total length of the survey (including questions and answer options) is approximately 750 words, however once the initial set of survey questions and answer options are translated, subsequent tabulation will just be of the open text responses (up to 100 words per survey response). Therefore, the task is expected to take approximately 5 hours overall.

Translation and interpretation
Youth Co:Lab positions young people front and center in order to solve the region’s most pressing challenges. Co-created in 2017 by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Citi Foundation, Youth Co:Lab aims to establish a common agenda for countries in the Asia-Pacific region to empower and invest in youth, so that they can accelerate the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through leadership, social innovation and entrepreneurship. Youth Co:Lab has been implemented in 25 countries and territories across Asia Pacific. Through this task, the Online Volunteer will play a key role in supporting UNDP and UNICEF in a joint research project aiming to understand the specific barriers that young women face to pursuing entrepreneurship. The geographic scope of the research is the ASEAN region with primary research in three focus countries: Indonesia, Lao PDR and Thailand. The research will produce programmatic recommendations for UNICEF and UNDP country and regional offices to address systemic barriers for young women and girls to develop entrepreneurial skillsets.
