Volunteer translation

As part of a translation team with the charity War Resistors International, their latest book which I worked on translating various articles, has been published. This is something I am very proud to have been a part of. The title of the book is “Sowing Seeds, The militarization of youths and how to counter it.”

I am an active member of The Rosetta Foundation, which organizes and provides translation work and opportunities for charities. I have also done various translations for charities and organizations, such as War Resisters International, Colabora Birmania and Tell-Tale Tours. All of which have been happy with my work and are happy to provide references. I volunteered my translation skills in my free time in order to gain more professional experience before starting a more full time career with translating.
