Transcharitable

It has been around 6 months now since our translation for causes project “The Great Translation Chain” started & with the continued support of our collaborators we have managed to raise the awareness of some of the terrible global situations that need redressing.

Our latest Chain “Where child sacrifice is business” has got to be one of the worst stories covered so far. In saying that, we cannot just ignore horrors such as this & worse still horrors which are taking place as I type this post. We did, when writing this sensitive story, sensor some information merely to make the job of our generous collaborators a little less traumatic; however the facts speak for themselves & we felt it vital that we spread the word.

The Great Translation Chain not only gives causes, such as the one run by The Jubilee Campaign, greater visibility by breaking down the barriers imposed by language but also gives the stories longevity. Way after the articles disappear from the online & paper press The Chain just keeps on growing. Long after they are posted we still receive – with unexpected pleasure – a new translation from someone who just happened to come across our project & thus they help to keep the story alive and fresh in the mind.

Going back to The Jubilee Campaign I would like to share some feedback we received yesterday from one of its USA representatives; after reading it my associate & I both agreed that we really need to push for as many translations of the “Where child sacrifice is business” article as possible – if you can help please hit the link ====>>

Feedback

Dear Samantha
Thank you so much for your interest and compassion on the issue of the Ugandan Child Sacrifices. Blogging on this issue is a great way to raise awareness, and we love that you and your team were able to translate the into three additional languages. As a group that does advocacy across language barriers, we are very aware of the importance of translation. Thank you for helping us get the word out and for promoting the petition.
I have forwarded your email to Danny Smith who runs Jubilee Campaign UK and is leading this petition. I invite you to contact him at danny@jubileecampaign.co.uk if you have any further questions.

Thanking Translators ….

Right from the outset we said that “The Great Translation Chain” was not only about supporting causes through translation, but was also about giving greater visibility to the vital work of translators.

We have remained true to our word & the latest addition to the site pays proof to that. We would thus like to introduce you to the new “Featured Collaborator” page. Our first feature goes to Saith Bautista – we will let him tell you more ………>
