Lingua Editors are responsible for coordinating teams of volunteer translators and editing translations from and into the various languages of the Lingua Project (see our many up-and-coming languages).

Our part-time Regional and Language Editors work with teams of volunteer authors to report in English about the blogs and citizen media of their regions or languages. Our Lingua Editors run our translation project websites and work with teams of volunteer translators to make Global Voices available to a worldwide, multilingual audience.
