Can you speak more than one language? Would you like to put your skills to good use? You can support Practical Action’s efforts to provide information to as many people as possible by partnering with us in our translation programme.
We are always looking to develop technical information in as many languages as possible, and are especially interested in the languages of the countries in which Practical Action works. Currently the majority of our material has been produced in English and Spanish; we also have documents in French, Arabic, Bengali, Nepali, Sinhala, Tamil, Kiswahili, Shona, Ndebele, Portuguese and Quechua. For knowledge to be shared widely and implemented into action, we are looking to get this material translated into more languages, especially those being used across Africa and Asia.
This is where your skills can be put into practice. If you have language skills and have the time to translate a document or even a part of a document, you can help. The work is on a voluntary basis.
Here are the names of some people and organisations who have helped us so far:
