Project details

What we need
  • Specific copy from one document (up to 1000 words) translated from one language to one other of the Organization's choice
  • Note: If you need more than 1000 words translated or copy translated into more than one language, please post additional versions of this project
Additional details

I need a PowerPoint presentation translated from English to Spanish. The presentation features specialized programs for adults working to earn their high school equivalency diploma or GED while preparing for a jobs in specific industries. The deck is created by City Colleges of Chicago. Women Employed was a partner in creating the programs described in the deck.

What we have in place
  • We currently have a completed English-language presentation, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a Spanish translation of a curriculum in a related program, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $7,098 , allowing us to program those resources into community organizations that provide direct service to adult students seeking to improve their earnings by increasing their education.

We are encouraging expansion of these programs. In a community breakfast meeting to discuss this expansion, community organization leaders themselves asked if the presentation could be made available in Spanish.
