Can you write Chinese, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Romanian, Swahili, or Thai fluently? Do you have experience in translation? Are you willing to give some of your time to make a difference for East Asia's peoples?
If so, we need you! We'd like you to help us engage with people and churches in their home language by helping us to translate mobilization and training materials from English to other languages. This will include helping us translate some selected web pages, missions opportunities, and training materials.
Please inquire about this opportunity if you think you might be able to help. Or alternatively, share it with someone who might!
This is a volunteer position that can be completed anywhere with good access to an internet connection.
OMF partners with the global church to reach unreached people across and beyond East Asia with the gospel. These churches include churches in Chinese, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Romanian, Swahili, and Thai speaking countries. (If you can translate into other languages please inquire and let us know what languages you have in mind.)
This website and our training material are important ways for reaching out and journeying alongside people from these churches as they seek to get involved in missions. By helping us translate those various resources into those languages, you will play a strategic role in helping us to engage better with these communities.
This ministry opportunity is flexible. You could spend one or two weeks to complete the initial translation. Or you could do it part-time over a month or two. We can send you the files that need to be translated by email and can also meet with you over Skype (or a similar program).
Translating web pages, missions opportunities, and training materials.
Fluency in with both written English and the language you will be translating materials into.
This will involve you interacting with people and potentially reviewing your translation with a virtual team that is spread out across different countries. It will be important that you are willing to communicate with people via email and/or Skype (or similar) if necessary.
