About Shared Interest 

Shared Interest transforms the lives of smallholder farmers and artisans.  Based in the UK we aim to alleviate poverty by helping people in remote and disadvantaged communities in developing countries, to trade, and earn a living.  We use investment from people living in the UK to provide loans to fair trade businesses worldwide.  In 2019 we lent nearly £70 million to over 200 customers across the world.   

About our Translators   

Our team of Translators work across Shared Interest to carry out translation tasks as required.  This may involve translating web content, case studies or customer facing documents.  The majority of our customers are based in Latin America and Africa and so it is important we have resources available in both Spanish (Latin American) and French.   

About the role 

The role will involve translating word documents from English into Spanish (Latin American) on an ad hoc basis and will require you to use your own computer or laptop.  The role will also involve some proof reading of already translated materials. 

Although this role is home based, volunteers will be supported remotely by a dedicated member of staff and email, phone and / or online communication will be required. 

You will have the opportunity to utilise or develop your translation skills through supporting us in developing our communications and you will get the chance to understand how our organisation engages with our customers. 

We would love to hear from you if you: 

  • Are a native Spanish (Latin American) speaker 

  • Have strong written and spoken English 

  • Can demonstrate accuracy and attention to detail 

  • Are self-motivated to carry out tasks independently 

We will support you with the following: 

  • Orientation and Induction training 

  • Ongoing support with a staff contact 

  • Basic reference (if requested) 

‘Proud to volunteer and contribute with my grain of sand to this amazing cause’ –Translator 

Volunteers will be selected based on ability to meet the above criteria.  This role involves an introductory period for all successful applicants.
