We assist prisoners facing the death penalty around the world and prisoners held as part of the ‘war on terror’. We are currently looking for some Indonesian translation help and I wondered if anyone of you may be interested in providing some voluntary assistance? We would need some help translating various types of documents, e.g. court documents, witness statements, letters etc., mainly from Indonesian to English for some cases that we are assisting on. The translation can be done remotely; it would be really great if you have some spare time to help with some documents occasionally.
There are different types and lengths of documents to translate. We will generally try to split larger documents between a group of people so no one is overburdened. Just to give you an idea, recently we split 15 pages of documents equally amongst three people as they signalled that they had capacity for about five pages each. If people wish to do more, then great, but equally, if someone is only able to do a page or two then we really appreciate that as well. In terms of turnaround, people tend to take a quick look at the document and then give us an expected completion date. This tends to range from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. Generally, we are building a pool of people that we occasionally send documents for translation to, so as to ensure that no one is ever overburdened.
