Translators

TRANSLATORS

We are a not-for-profit organisation whose success depends on a team of highly-skilled, voluntary translators. If you are bilingual (or multilingual!) and interested in translating museum text we would love to hear from you. To be eligible for the role, we kindly request volunteers to be available for a minimum of 30 minutes per week at a time most convenient to them.

 

How it works:

 

  • Museum text requiring translation is distributed to a member of the team and is to be returned, fully translated
  • Translated text is proof-read and reworked if necessary
  • Once the translated text has final approval by the proof-reader, the text will be submitted to the museum for display

 

A record is kept of all translations completed by our volunteers. We are happy to provide references verifying the commitment and achievements made by volunteers. Dedicated volunteers who are interested in advancing within the organisation may also be given the opportunity to move to managing or development roles when they arise.
