French Language Volunteer Proficiency Evaluator

Parlez-vous franҫais? If you are a French language professor, a translation studies graduate or a certified translator Iowa Legal Aid needs your help.

Iowa Legal Aid is currently looking for French language volunteer proficiency evaluators. Volunteer language proficiency evaluators at Iowa Legal Aid play an important role in helping low-income Iowans with limited English proficiency (LEP) skills gain access to justice. Language proficiency evaluators will assess the translation and interpretation abilities of prospective volunteer translators and interpreters. In addition, they may also review and provide feedback on the materials translated by Iowa Legal Aid’s volunteer translators. Based on their availability, volunteer evaluators will be given regular assignments which they can perform remotely.

Qualified volunteer applicants will be language professors, translation studies graduate students and translators/interpreters holding certifications from government bodies such as state or federal courts or recognized professional associations such as the ATA, NAJIT, CCHI, NBCMI or RID.
