Contexto y objetivos
Because recruiting skilled volunteers need clear Descriptions of Assignment (DOAs) for them to understand clearly what is expected from them, we seek online volunteers who will have the responsibility to translate 30 DOAs, gathered in approximately 26 pages, from English to French and Spanish. As this document is confidential for our partners' missions assignments, we need to collaborate with highly skilled translators. This task will help organizations worldwide to request, in a faster manner, new volunteers to help them working on Sustainable Development Goals. The document will be shared once the volunteers selected and they will not have to right to reuse it for any other purpose once the task completed. Also, the successful online volunteers will be fully credited for their efforts. Due to the number of pages to be translated in each language, it will be spitted between two online volunteers for each language, in addition to another one in charge of editing.
Programas de desarrollo, asistencia técnica y gestión de voluntarios
The documents to be translated have been developed by The United Nations Volunteering (UNV) Programme. Lately, the Descriptions of Assignment's translation has became a more and more important in our recruitment processes, which is part of the United Nations Volunteering Programme's core activities. We are looking for some online volunteers able to give some more impact to our work by sharing their expertise in English-French and English-Spanish bilingualism.
