With Sudan's on-going transition, the UNDP Country Offices faces an increasing volume of work addressing development challenges. Volunteers, subject to their availability, will be asked to translate 2-3 x 0.5 - 2 page documents per week from Sudanese dialect Arabic to English. Volunteers will be provided documents with approximately 48 hours to return them, with the documents providing overviews of key events, activities, policies and figures in Sudan, for use in briefings for incoming UNDP Sudan staff.
Translation and interpretation
In Sudan, UNDP responds to developmental challenges created by a lack of basic services, a history of prolonged conflict and on-going sporadic violence, significant national debt, economic sanctions, and Sudan’s fragile relations with the international community. With increasing staff levels and areas of work, we have a number of Government of Sudan documents, media articles and other documents requiring translation for review by UNDP Sudan staff. The contributions of volunteers will directly support UNDP Sudan's work, and its staff, assisting the people and Government of Sudan through their transition.
Volunteers: 3 needed
1-5 hours per week / 4 weeks
