Job Description

Greek Translator (volunteer)

Note: The following is an opportunity for flexible, part-time, volunteer work to address climate change. Please DO NOT APPLY if you are only looking for paid employment. A 6 months commitment is preferred. This is a remote-from-home position. 

Are you fluent in Greek? Do you want to make a difference in the climate crisis? Do you want to learn the ins and outs of a global organization in an interesting environment? Are you motivated by working with smart and talented individuals who are creating a better world? Can you commit 2 - 5 hours a week, working remotely on your own schedule with our far-flung, diverse team? If so, we would love to chat about your help and unique talents. 

Who We Are

Earth Hero is a global all-volunteer nonprofit organization with users in 153 countries. We exist to make it easy to act on climate change. The climate emergency we currently face requires adequate and immediate action. It is one of the most threatening crises of our time. To rise to the challenge, we help people discover personalized, positive steps to care for our shared planet, improve lives, and build a better future. Check out https://www.earthhero.org and download the free app to get to know us better and see if our mission and project resonate with you.

We are looking for action-oriented individuals who are excited to address climate change. As a startup, we are looking for people who will help build and scale our impact and at the same time are willing to roll up their sleeves to get stuff done! This is an opportunity to be part of an organization where you can have a direct impact, grow your experience, and have the flexibility to fit the role into your life.

Responsibilities

  • Help translate the Earth Hero app from English to Greek. We already have a good start, but are looking for help to speed it up.
  • Review the test Greek version before it is released to the public. 
  • Advise on how to better customize the Earth Hero app for Greek users.
  • Perform various translation and interpretation duties as needed once the Greek version of the app is launched. This could include helping respond to messages, translating for social media, and other things like website content, news articles, and reports.

Experiences useful in this role

  • Fluent in Greek.
  • Current with the latest Greek-language idioms and cultural references to allow for great translations.
  • Excellent attention to detail.

Perks

  • Be part of the solution to one of the biggest challenges of our age.
  • Channel your talents and passion in an interesting environment.
  • Develop new skills and valuable experience to enhance your professional trajectory.
  • Do amazing work on a flexible, part-time basis.
  • Have fun while you make a difference.

Expectations

You will work remotely and on your own schedule. Roles work best with a minimum commitment of 6 months for 2 - 5 hours a week (or more if you like!). Because our all-volunteer team is spread throughout the world, we rely mostly on a combination of Slack and video calls to communicate.

If you possess a high level of self-motivation, work well independently, have strong collaboration skills, enjoy the opportunity to partner with like-minded individuals, and can commit quality time per week to help achieve team goals, we would love to hear from you.

To Apply: To apply, send your resume/CV or LinkedIn profile and a brief message explaining why you are a good fit for this volunteer position. Please note that there is a limited number of positions available. You can submit through this platform or send a message to apply@earthhero.org
