Freelance Translators Division: Communications

As part of a continuous effort to increase and improve its pool of freelance translators, the Editorial Services program of the Communications Division welcomes the résumés of highly qualified translators to collaborate on translation projects covering various languages: Spanish and French principally, but also German, Portuguese, Chinese, and Japanese, amongst others.

Because IFPRI disseminates its translated work to key audiences worldwide with a view to increasing its impact on food policies and the fight against hunger, it is crucial that our publications meet very high quality standards. These publications range from letters and briefs to discussion papers and entire books, covering subjects that fall within the agricultural economics and nutrition fields with varying degrees of technical content. We are therefore exclusively interested in translators who are highly experienced in these areas and who possess excellent writing skills in their native language as well as proficiency in English. We also expect the translator to be able to work occasionally on a rush basis and at short notice.

If interested, you may send your résumé and translation samples to Corinne Garber (c.garber@cgiar.org). Please note that if your qualifications meet our requirements, we will keep your information on file and will only contact you if you are selected for a particular translation project. No replies will be sent until then.

IFPRI is one of the international agricultural research institutes organized under the umbrella of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR). The mandate of IFPRI is to identify and analyze alternative national and international strategies and policies for meeting world food needs in ways that conserve the natural resource base, with emphasis on low-income countries and on the poorer groups in those countries.

IFPRI offers a multicultural, collegial research environment with competitive salary and excellent benefits. IFPRI is an international and equal opportunity organization and believes that the diversity of its staff contributes to excellence. Women and developing country professionals are encouraged to apply.

Such a concept integrates many attractive features. From an economic perspective, the costs associated with raw materials and the treatment of waste streams is decreased. From an environmental point of view, the impact of the manufacturing facility on its surroundings is lessened.

PROGRAM OFFICER MENTAL HEALTH INITIATIVE

POSITION AVAILABLE

PROGRAM OFFICER

MENTAL HEALTH INITIATIVE

OPEN SOCIETY INSTITUTE, BUDAPEST



The Open Society Foundations work to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens. To achieve this mission, the Foundations seek to shape public policies that assure greater fairness in political, legal, and economic systems and safeguard fundamental rights. On a local level, the Open Society Foundations implement a range of initiatives to advance justice, education, public health, and independent media. At the same time, we build alliances across borders and continents on issues such as corruption and freedom of information. The Foundations place a high priority on protecting and improving the lives of people in marginalized communities.

Investor and philanthropist George Soros established the Open Society Foundations, starting in 1984, to help countries make the transition from communism. Our activities have grown to encompass the United States and more than 70 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. Each Foundation relies on the expertise of boards composed of eminent citizens who determine individual agendas based on local priorities.
