We are looking for reliable, high quality translations from English to German for short pieces, normally under 100 words for a number of campaign-related items. There are several pieces, including social media cards, text to accompany images on social media, short video script, that are ready to translate as part of the outreach campaign for a global movement for action happening from Sept 18-26. Given the short timelines, we are looking for someone who can start immediately and can dedicate hours from now until early October. See examples here in the public trello board: https://trello.com/b/mOvFxhVP/act4sdgs

    The UN SDG Action Campaign catalyses advocacy and engagement, bringing together diverse actors and partners. Through compelling, creative SDG outreach and communications strategies, the UN SDG Action Campaign supports and serves UN Member States and the UN system. It links organizations from civil society, local governments, think tanks, the arts and culture, the media and the business world. It mobilizes individuals to champion the SDGs in homes, communities and beyond. Ultimately, the Campaign’s goal is to channel the power of people, through growing SDG networks, to understand, commit to and act on the Goals – and inspire others to do the same. At a moment of acute crisis in our world, the Campaign seizes opportunities to rethink behaviour, reorient policymaking and ramp up services critical to the SDGs.

    Volunteers will be contacted by email and/or video chat to discuss the tasks and the timeline for the coming weeks. Some translations may be required with a short turnaround time - 24-48 hours. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated experience with translation. Some experience with translating UN content or materials related to the Sustainable Development Goals is a strong asset. Familiarity with producing content in Canva would be extremely helpful for getting the content published.
