Translators without Borders (TWB) Job Vacancy

Spread the love

Job Title: Hausa Language Support (National Position)
Location: Maiduguri, Borno
Hours: Part-time (20 hours per week)
Travel: No
Reporting to: Nigeria Language Services Coordinator
Contract length: 12 months, with a possibility of extension

Mission
The mission of Translators without Borders is to provide people with access to vital knowledge in their language.  We do this by building language technology, increasing language translation capacity at a local level, providing language and simplification services that are culturally appropriate, accessible and open source, and raising awareness globally of language barriers.

Background

  • In northeast Nigeria, humanitarian organizations are working to support some 1.9 million internally displaced people (IDPs) and the communities hosting them. But language is a challenge: in this linguistically diverse part of the world, people forced from their homes don’t always speak the same language as the people around them. International aid organizations may lack the skills to communicate with everyone in their own mother tongue.
  • They often also lack information about the language and communication needs of affected people.
  • TWB has been providing language services in northeast Nigeria for just over a year, building humanitarian capacity for communication in the right language and format. A lot needs to be done.
  • TWB in Nigeria is rapidly scaling up its teams and programs to support responders’ efforts to communicate more effectively, with funding from DFID and ECHO and partnerships with key humanitarian responders like the Norwegian Refugee Council, the International Organization for Migration and the International Rescue Committee
  • We do not want one third of internally displaced people to lack information in their language. We do not want widespread communication gaps to compromise data quality. We do not want the too common reliance on written communication to exclude vulnerable groups.

So we innovate, we research, we bring unique expertise and approaches to:

  • Provide evidence to inform communication strategies, as we have just done with our latest report on audio communication for example.
  • Promote accountability through two-way communication in the right languages. TWB helps tailor community feedback mechanisms to the language and communication needs of the most vulnerable.
  • Reduce confusion with multilingual terminology databases. TWB’s sectoral glossaries are available for free on a mobile web app with offline and audio capability.
  • Train interpreters and field workers. Training in the basics of interpreting limits information loss and aids confidential, ethical support services. Language training for data collectors and program staff promotes data quality and program impact.
  • Improve understanding with plain language, translation, and audio. Clear content in plain language using pictures and audio benefits the widest audience. We offer written and audio translations, and support pictorial messaging.

Role

  • The Hausa Language Support, under the guidance of the Nigeria Language Services Coordinator, will be responsible for the high-quality of TWB language services in Hausa, in northeastern Nigeria and beyond.
  • Specifically, s/he will deliver and/or ensure the quality of written translations, transcriptions, audio recording, terminology tools, and other language services to humanitarian organizations in Hausa, and contribute to monitoring, research and training activities.

Other:

  • Support the implementation of field activities, including comprehension studies, needs assessments and wider research on language
  • Support TWB’s efforts to scale up operations in Nigeria and the Lake Chad basin
  • The role will evolve during the course of the initial deployment as projects and activities develop so flexibility and the willingness to adapt to constantly changing circumstances is important.
  • Initiate or contribute to regular reporting as required
  • Maintain open and professional relationships with the internal TWB team, TWB volunteers and partner agencies
  • Contribute to a positive, innovative and supportive work environment
  • Any other duties relevant to the job description as needed
