INTERPRETATION & TRANSLATION

Our survivor-centered approach emphasizes culturally- and linguistically-sensitive programming and services. As such, we are often in need of bilingual volunteers to help translate documents or occasionally, interpret in person for clients. Predominant needs have been Spanish, Mandarin, and Korean; however, we serve clients from across the globe and are often in need of assistance with other languages.

Currently seeking: Hungarian and Malayalam translators. Date needed: ongoing
