Project Details

What We Need
  • Specific copy from one document (up to 1000 words) translated from one language to one other of the Organization's choice
  • Note: If you need more than 1000 words translated or copy translated into more than one language, please post additional versions of this project
Additional Details

We are looking to get some of our most widely used collateral translated into Spanish and are hoping to find someone to work with on an ongoing basis. We do not expect all of the collateral to be turned around at once, but are hoping to translate additional documents throughout the year as we are working to become more inclusive.

What We Have In Place
  • We already have a library of content which we would like translated. We are open to working with google docs, word documents, or sending InDesign Markup files if the volunteer is comfortable translating directly into the graphic design file.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $7,098 , allowing us to put that money towards marketing strategy and tactics to reach Spanish speaking job seekers.

Towards Employment has just recently developed an REI Core Team and has dedicated a significant amount of time to becoming more inclusive. Headquartered in Cleveland, many of the people we serve come from diverse ethnic backgrounds and need employment. Currently, we are not reaching them because of the language barrier. We hope this is the first step to being able to run more extensive marketing campaigns targeting Spanish speaking job seekers.
