Job Search: Translator

Job: Translator

Description: The Translation committee is looking for people interested in joining these existing translation teams: Czech, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Japanese. (We are also open to forming new language teams. If you are fluent in languages other than these, please let us know.)

Translators are currently working on the OTW website and various other materials (membership drive posts, etc), but will soon begin the massive job of translating the Archive, which means active translators will get Archive beta accounts!

Estimated Time Involved: A couple hours a week. We are always adding new content that needs to be translated, so this is an ongoing project. The length of commitment is up to you, and we encourage people to take breaks from the Org when they need them.

How to Volunteer: Use our contact form to send us the following information:

Your name (you may provide your real name or your fannish name–please consider what you feel comfortable using both inside and outside the organization):

Your email address:

Language(s) and applicable experience:

Please put “Translator” in the subject line. Please do not include embedded links.

Send us your information by: Job Closed

All volunteers will receive an email confirming their information has been received; please give us up to five days following the deadline to reply.

Anyone can contact the Volunteers & Recruiting committee at any time by using our contact form.

Vidding on NPR’s All Things Considered

National Public Radio’s program All Things Considered is doing a 5 minute segment on vidding tonight, February 25th, 2009, featuring members of the OTW’s Vidding History project and some well-known vidders. You can listen live on NPR or hear it streaming online later at npr.org. (The site can also tell you when the show broadcasts in your area.)

Edited to add: The piece is now online; a short accompanying article, Vidders Talk Back To Their Pop-Culture Muses is also available.
