Global Lives is looking for native and bilingual Chinese, Hindi, Turkish, Kannada, Vietnamese, Spanish, Tibetan, French, Mandarin, Sundanese, Indonesian, Arabic, Sichuanese, and Korean speakers.
What’s it like to be a cable-car brakeman in San Francisco? Or a hip hop musician in the periphery of São Paulo? How about a farmer at a state-owned plantation in a Sundanese village of Indonesia? Global Lives Project documents 24-hours in the lives of people around the world in order to cultivate empathy between cultures and celebrate the diversity of human experience.
We are a multimedia, non-profit organization driven by a collective of over 1,000 filmmakers, media artists and translators working to build a video library of life experience.
We are currently recruiting native and bilingual Chinese, Hindi, Turkish, Kannada, Vietnamese, Serbian, Spanish, Tibetan, French, Mandarin, Sundanese, Indonesian, Arabic, Sichuanese, and Korean speakers to join the Global Lives collective of translators.
As a volunteer in the Global Lives translation community, you will feel a sense of ownership over our footage and form an intimate connection with our subjects and communities by the end of your volunteer process.
Collaborate with us! Fill out our translation volunteer form to receive specific information about your specific role and film project.
