News Translation Volunteers

Would you like to help translate OTW/AO3 news posts? We are looking for volunteers of native or near-native fluency in their target languages, who can translate or beta news posts within five-day deadlines. If you enjoy working collaboratively, if you’re fluent in a language other than English, if you’re passionate about the OTW and its projects, and want to help us reach more fans all around the world, working with Translation might be for you!

We particularly need people for Afrikaans, Bengali, Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Japanese, Korean, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Marathi, Norwegian, Persian, Portuguese-PT, Sinhala, Slovak, Slovenian, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese and Welsh —but help with other languages would be much appreciated.

(Please note that our Arabic, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Indonesian, Italian, Malay, Polish, Portuguese-BR, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Swedish teams are not accepting new members at this time.)

Applicants may be asked to translate and correct short text samples and will be invited to a chatroom interview as part of the selection process. More information about us can be found on the Translation committee page.

Applications are due 21 October 2020
