Baan Dek Foundation is a non-profit, non-political and non-religious organization that supports over 1,000 disadvantaged children in slums and construction site camps in Chiang Mai Province, Thailand. Through tailored educational programs and in-depth individual support, Baan Dek Foundation protects vulnerable children, allows families to become self-sustainable and provides children with opportunities for a better future.
Baan Dek Foundation is officially registered according to Thai Law and is supported by four independent entities: Kids Home France, Kids Home Italia, Kids Home UK and Kids Home America, which are all recognized as charitable associations in their respective countries. Baan Dek Foundation is currently working in partnership with UNICEF Thailand and has won the 2017 MIT Solve Challenge. You can find further information about Baan Dek Foundation’s projects at www.baandekfoundation.org.
Baan Dek Foundation is currently seeking an English to Thai/Shan/Burmese/Khmer Translator. The objective of the mission is to translate English content for an app that teaches life skills, in their own native languages, to vulnerable children living in underserved communities (such as slums and construction site camps). We will need a target language translation for each sentence or section that will take the same amount of time to record as the corresponding English text, so that all of the animations in the life skill are the same length in every language. The successful applicant will be provided with the English script, as well as the timing for how long for each section should take to record in the target language (Thai, Shan, Burmese, and/or Khmer).
Position status: External consultancy on a daily basis.
Compensation: Compensation will be available on a daily basis, to be defined with Program Officer.
If interested, please contact Program Officer Nicole Geller at email@example.com. The successful applicant will be expected to comply with Baan Dek Foundation's Child Protection Policy. The Baan Dek Foundation is an equal opportunity employer and the successful candidate will be selected based on merit and in line with the local needs.
