I want to volunteer as a translator
To continue making stories available to as many children and teenagers around the world as possible, we are always on the lookout for native speakers to translate and proofread stories.
Please use one of the six basic languages - Arabic, English, French, Mandarin, Russian or Spanish - or the original as the basis of your translation. We try to ensure that small inaccuracies do not pile up into large ones.
All translations are reviewed by a second native speaker before being published. Therefore, we need volunteers for proofreeding as well. As a proofreader, you ensure that the translated story is true to the content and style of the original and you correct any typos and spelling and punctuation errors.
If you want to help stories to travel around the world, please feel free to contact us at
and let us know which language you want to help us with.
Because we are receiving a lot of requests at the moment, please read through these points before sending your mail:
- For the languages German, English, Spanish, French and Italian we currently have enough translators. Therefore, all books on the website have already been translated into these languages. As soon as we are looking for translators for these languages again, we will announce it here on the website.
- Please be sure to write in your email from which language you would like to translate into which language.
- Please note that you can only translate into your native language(s).
- Sometimes we receive a lot of requests at once. It can then take up to 14 days for us to respond to your request.
We look forward to hearing from you!
