Upon receipt of the document for translation, the online volunteer is to confirm the estimated time required for the completion of the assigned task. The volunteers should adhere to the agreed-upon timeline of delivery. Online Volunteers will be given a certificate of appreciation, as well as receive acknowledgment on the final product.
Traducción e interpretación
The Ministry of Social Solidarity in Egypt, jointly with UN Volunteers Programme and Plan International Egypt worked together to develop the National Volunteering Manual for Egypt. The manual includes two parts; one to guide NGOs mobilizing and managing volunteers, and the other is to inform volunteers about their roles, responsibilities, duties, as well as entitlements and rights. The manual is a corner stone to build the volunteering infrastructure in Egypt. It is a model to be replicated in other countries. The translation of the manual into English will help non-Arabic experts assess it and give their feedback. It will also help other countries apply it at national level.
