Background and objectives
We are looking for a group of experienced professional translators to translate a 140 page research paper from English to Arabic as well as one volunteer to coordinate the efforts. The translation of the paper would be divided among a group of translators equally. The research paper is on 'Gender and Elections' and is a culmination of all the most recent scholarly research on this topic. The research paper translation is an effort to make the knowledge on electoral administration and democracy available in Arabic in the Middle East and North Africa and will be published online on the ACE Electoral Knowledge Network and will be used by Arabic-speaking researchers and policy makers in the field of gender and elections and women's political participation. We will be providing the volunteers with an electoral Arabic-English-French Lexicon of electoral terminology as supportive material. The online volunteers will be requested to complete a short online assessment prior to their selection.
