Communications Graphics Volunteer

Are you a digital artist interested in the OTW’s work? The OTW Communications committee is looking for graphic designers to create digital art for our news posts and other official documents. Communications is the main information distribution team for the OTW. We manage the OTW News blog and related social media accounts, and we assist other teams in managing project-specific communication. If you would like to join the OTW and help bring fandom news to the public, click through to learn more about the role and apply to join as a Communications Volunteer.

Applications are due 12 February 2020

Translation Volunteer

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!

Translation volunteers help make the OTW and its projects accessible to a wider global audience. We work on translating content by the OTW and its projects from English to other languages, such as site pages, news posts, AO3 FAQs and AO3 Support emails. (However, we do not translate fanworks.)

We really need volunteers who speak Afrikaans, Arabic, Bengali, Bulgarian, Croatian, Danish, Filipino, Finnish, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Japanese, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Marathi, Persian, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Thai, Ukrainian, Vietnamese and Welsh—but help with other languages would be much appreciated. If you’re interested in starting a team for a language we don’t have yet, you’re very welcome to!

(Please note that our Catalan, Czech, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Indonesian, Italian, Korean, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese-BR, Portuguese-PT, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish 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 12 February 2020
