I would like to volunteer as a translator.
We always welcome assistance in translating books into even more languages and are on the lookout for native speakers to translate and proofread stories.
First, a book is translated by professional translators into six base languages: Arabic, English, French, Mandarin, Russian and Spanish.
The next part is where we need your help. This is where your voluntary translations come into play. Please use one of these versions or the original for your translations. We want to make sure that small inaccuracies do not turn into major errors through the translation process.
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.
It may be the case that a particular book is already being translated into your native language. Please, send us an e-mail to let us know in which language you would like to help us.
