Welcome to another PerMondo update – brace yourselves, because we’ve got a lot to tell you!
Let’s firstly tell you about the new projects that we’ve received from our loyal NGOs this week…
…The National Down Syndrome Congress has asked us to translate a short article from English into Spanish, which is currently being proofread and should be delivered soon.
We’ve also taken on two new huge projects for the Research Institute for Waldorf Education: We’re firstly translating a 77,192-word book on the teaching of history from English into Spanish; and similar articles with a total of 4076 words. We’re extremely grateful to the organisation, as they have yet again been able to offer our helpful volunteers a payment for their services!
Our final new project this week is somewhat different and exciting: The International Coordination of the Young Christian Workers Movement requires a native French interpreter for simultaneous Spanish and English interpreting for their International Meeting in Seoul in August this year. We’re delighted to announce that our very own Pauline Junca will be travelling over there to provide her services at this exciting event. We’re grateful to the organisation for covering all travel and accommodation costs!
Now that we’ve got our new projects out the way, it’s time to tell you all about the mammoth amount of translations that we’ve completed over the past few weeks…
…And it’s only logical to start with our largest: The World Movement of Christian Workers is happy with our translations of several documents from French and Portuguese into several languages. We owe a massive thanks on this project to the following volunteers: Alba Pereda Nieto, Alex Gardiner, Andrés Vergara, Anja Jetter, Charles Murphey, Donata Wojcik, Elfi Christiane Rückert, Elizabeth Sauser-Monnig, Fernando Collado Expósito, Geneviève Tardif, Haline Fernández, Holli Elise McClean, Jannika Otte, Johanna Bietau, Jorge Vega, Kristin Kuschnerik-Bischoff, Larkin Cleland, Lourdes Ponce López, Marcela Torrez Suárez, Phil Smart, Rachel Russell, Simone Gruhl and Stefanie Lang.
And that isn’t the only project that we’ve wrapped up for the WMCW this week: We’ve also translated 1142 words from French into English, Spanish and German. Our helpful volunteers on this project were Chris Tamblin, Elfi Christiane Rückert, Jasmine Hoyt, Leticia Rodríguez Torrado, Patricia Peña Alonso and Simone Gruhl.
Our first ever project with the Asociación Mujeres Opañel has also been successfully completed. The women’s shelter required the translation of 6 documents (3758 words) from Spanish into Arabic, French and Romanian. Amine Medri, Catherine Viot, Houda Diouane, Madalina Ioja, Pauline Junca and Renata Pucanszki all helped us out on this first ever successful collaboration.
We’ve also wrapped up two translation projects with the SeriousFun Children’s Network recently. The first project involved the translation of 8 documents (1718 words) from French into English. Many thanks to Alison Tomblin, Faye East, Sarah Cogan and Shana Heslin, all of whom gave us a helping hand on this project.
The second project also involved the translation of 8 documents from French into English, this time with a total of 3661 words. Our team of translators and proofreaders on this project was made up of Carl Eadie, Jasmine Hoyt, Katherine Rutter, Katie McIvor, Laura Streather and Riteba McCallum.
In other news, we’ve also provided Solthis with our translation of 4 documents (3438 words) from French into English. Our translators on this project were Charlotte Valks, Hannah Slater, Hannah Wallis, Katie McIvor, Lauren Hornsey and Neil Hewat.
Our first ever project with Code Club Ukraine has also been brought to a successful close. Many thanks to Roksolana Pavlyshyn for helping us out on this one!
What’s more, the Jesuits Migrant Service Spain also received their first ever translations off us this week. Our first ever collaboration was a big one: the translation of 17,437 words from Spanish into English, a project on which we were supported by Gareth Harding, Hannah Sibley, Hannah Wallis, Laura Humphries, Lyndsey Bywater, Melissa Robl, Nina Clancy and Philip Hall.
Furthermore, our first translations for Únete al Planeta’s latest YouTube project have also been provided to the NGO. Many thanks to Inmaculada Coloma Sancho, Maria Àngels Biarge, Pauline Junca and Thomas McGuinn for their help on this exciting project.
We’d also like to say a big thank-you to Cat Nguyen, who provided the Vietnamese translation for the website Traductions pour Les Etrangers à l’Hôpital. We look forward to seeing the translation posted soon!
The final translation that we’ve delivered recently has been 610 words from English into Spanish for Entreculturas. Martin Cinalli was kind enough to help us out on this project.
PerMondo would like to thank all of the volunteers who have helped us out on our recent projects, and we look forward to providing grateful NGOs with even more translations in the coming weeks!
Have a great week!
