Actually I (Jiawei) have been registered as a Rosetta Foundation volunteer since beginning 2013. Although this is an organization based in Ireland, it is not difficult to register! Just go to their website: http://www.therosettafoundation.org/ and follow the instructions, you could become a volunteer within one week!
The Rosetta Foundation was formed since 2009; they help to connect language volunteers with mostly non-profit organizations that work with under-served communities. Together with these organizations they aim to create access to language services that were previously unavailable to linguistically marginalized communities. The work done by the Rosetta Foundation allows these communities better access to knowledge and information around justice, education, healthcare, and economic well-being I feel honored to be one of their registered volunteers to help with the translation work, specialized in English to Chinese, Chinese to English, French to Chinese, French to English translation work.
I feel extremely excited, because translation is something that I enjoy doing during my leisure time. Speaking 5 different languages, I feel this would be a particular and meaningful way to contribute to the society!
So far I have helped them in diverse translation projects such as Special Olympics Projects, LifeSteps Projects, etc. It was not only a cool way to contribute, but as well, a great opportunity to learn and make friends! I felt extremely fulfilled when my translation works were highly appraised by my colleagues in the foundation! In summary, this is one of my most exciting and meaningful life experiences and I felt so honored to be one of the Rosetta community!
