JOB POST: On-Line Translators for Disability Focus

Posted on 5 November 2007. Filed under: Announcements, Jobs & Internships, Opportunities | Tags: , , , |

Lextracon LLC, a US-based company specializing in legal and financial language services, is launching a corporate social responsibility initiative called “Disability Focus.”

Disability Focus has the goal of creating working opportunities for persons with disabilities, while providing disability-specialized translation services that are expected to be in demand during the process of implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

The idea combines a response to a market-driven demand with a social initiative. The social initiative consists of creating a worldwide network of persons with disabilities with advanced language skills, familiar with culturally sensitive terminology in the field of disability, and with a basic knowledge of computer (use of emails, word processors, scanners, handling of PDF files).

While the long-term goal is to create an e-network of certified translators, the short-term objective is to create on-line specialized translation opportunities that will be complemented with continuing vocational training, allowing the members of the network to gradually reach national accreditation as professional translators.

If you believe that you have the above-mentioned requisites, and you are interested in this challenge, please send your resume with details on translation and computing skills to: marco.nicoli@lextracon.com, referencing “Disability Focus Initiative.” Please indicate also if you are interested in being considered for more extended opportunities in legal / financial translations and what your qualifications are.

Best regards
Marco Nicoli

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
