The Translation Committee is one of the committees involved in the Organization for Transformative Works.


The OTW website describes its role:

The Translation committee coordinates volunteer translators and liaises with other committees to make their projects and documents available in as many languages as possible. The committee does not actually translate things, so you don't need to be a translator — ideally, you're a project/volunteer/organisation management type with an interest in languages. We meet bi-weekly for about 2 hours and are very supportive of each other, but the main bulk of the work is independent: lots of emails checking in with your language teams. While it is rewarding to work so closely with volunteers, it needs a fair share of self-motivation to keep up close and regular contact. [1]
