Translators without Borders is looking for Nyole translators and revisers. The engagement is for a project that has an expected volume of approximately 150 glossary terms to be translated by the Middle of September 2022. This project will focus on the revision and translation of a glossary of terms, that focuses on Safe & Dignified Programming, which is the process of incorporating protection principles and promoting meaningful access, safety and dignity in humanitarian aid, disaster risk reduction and accountability.
This glossary will be tested so more translation work from English into Nyole and possibly some amendment to the Term Base might be necessary.
Please note that these roles and responsibilities are approximate and may change over time.

The right candidate is an energetic team player who agrees with TWB’s Core Values and can work virtually to collaborate with team members based throughout the world.
