Translation Training  

At the Press Portal ProMosaik

In the field of alternative journalism and human rights

 

 

The network of authors, translators, human rights activists and journalists ProMosaik was founded with the aim to put peoples, languages, and religions together, by esteeming their diversity and particularity.

 

We engage for the protection of human rights in all cultures and religions. One of our main activity consists in the translation of articles, books, and research works from other languages. In addition, on our press portal we also publish news about subjects like culture, religion, peace education, and dialogue. These are the main principles on which we base of all-day work and that we transmit with passion and engagement.

 

Within the scope of the internship offered for free to the candidates the trainees interested in a participation to the project must complete the following tasks:

 

-         A planning discussion of about 1 hour per week over skype with the editorial department of ProMosaik and the competent tutor. In this discussion, the aim is being pursued of planning together the common work of the week in joint agreement;

 

-         The translation of five articles (of 600-1500 words) per week from the chosen foreign language into their own native language;

 

The translations are corrected by the component native tutor and published on the press portal of ProMosaik. The translator’s name will be indicated, unless the intern does not desires it.

 

-         The research of materials in the foreign language about a subject chosen by the trainee. The fields in which the research must be carried out are the following: human rights, Islam and Islamic world, pacifism and militarism, colonialism and imperialism, Israel/Palestine, cultural diversity, feminism and women rights, religion and interreligious dialogue, migration and refugees, racism and discrimination.  

 

-         An article written by the trainee about one of the subjects indicated in the previous paragraph which, at the trainee’s option, can be written in the native or in the source language the trainee translates from. The subject of the article which has to contain 600-1500 words will be chosen by the trainee at the beginning of the week and be discussed with the tutor over skype in the weekly planning discussion.
