Making a Difference – Translator Edition

When I was a sophomore in college, a very generous scholarship donor chose me as a recipient. It probably didn’t make much of a difference to the donor, but for me, the scholarship was life-changing, since it allowed me to spend a semester abroad and ultimately shaped my degree and career path. Ever since, I’ve developed a love for giving back and donating.

For most freelancers who are just getting started, it can be difficult finding resources to spare. However, there are many ways to donate, and doing a little pro bono work is a great way to gain experience and also help make the world a better place. If you’re a translator looking for a way to give back, check out Pieter Beens’ tips on his blog for getting started translating with charities. And watch the Same Day Translations blog next week for more tips on how translators can give back!
