The assignment will include a volunteer opportunity as a remote translator from English to Arabic. We are coordinating the localization of the smartphone application developed by the United Nations World Food Programme, from English to Arabic.

This job is completely online, and includes one to five hours of translation assistance per week.

The World Food Program is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger around the world, providing emergency food assistance and working with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience.

As the world changes, innovation is critical to enable the World Food Program (WFP) to meet global needs and fulfill its mandate of Zero Hunger. Launched in 2016, the WFP Innovation Accelerator program identifies, supports and scales up high-potential solutions to hunger around the world.

We support WFP intrapreneurs, external startups and companies from our home in Munich, Germany, with financial support, access to a network of experts and global field reach.

The Accelerator believes that the way forward in the fight against hunger is not necessarily to build grand plans, but to identify and test solutions in an agile way.

Task description

ShareTheMeal is an app from the World Food Program that enables people to “share their meals” with those in need. Since most texts are short, translations can often be entered into email, Word documents, or Excel sheets. We are looking to partner with someone who is willing to work with us for 12 weeks.

Every translation sheet comes out on Friday, and we'll need it back by Monday. Therefore, this task requires a weekend contribution. The length of each translation paper varies, but averages about 500 words.

We are very excited about our accomplishments and future campaigns in which we try to combat child hunger around the world.
