Lingua - Global Voices Translation Project

The Global Voices Lingua Project amplifies Global Voices stories with the help of volunteer translators. It opens the line of communication with non-English speaking bloggers and readers of Global Voices by translating content into 30 languages.

We also welcome volunteers who can translate from one of our languages into English, or even collaborating as writers of news pieces. If you are not a translator, there are many more ways to help!

We have a community of 500 volunteer translators around the world. To join our team, all you need to do is to fill in this application form. The relevant editor will then get in touch with you with the next steps.

We regret to say we are currently not recruiting English translators. We do welcome contributors who can do both, translate and write original pieces covering countries in which they have an interest or good level of expertise. If that appeals to you, please use this application form instead.

If your language is listed below, please use the relevant application form linked.
