Translator (IT) at HELP for Domestic Workers

How Time Auction works

1. Earn Karma

Donating and logging past volunteer hours earns you Karma Points, which you can then use to bid on auctions. $1 donated earns 1 Karma Point and 1 hour volunteered earns 10 Karma Points.

2. Bid

Bid your Karma Points to meet inspiring people, such as humanitarians, entrepreneurs, athletes, or artists. Most auctions allow every bidder to win if the goal is reached.

3. Meet

Time Auction is all about priceless experiences and rewards for the priceless philanthropy you do. Depending on the auction, meetings are done virtually or in person... or both!

Translator (IT)

Help us develop a (Traditional) Chinese-translated version of our interactive Twine game - for our "FirstHand" project which helps children in Hong Kong form a positive perspective of migrant domestic workers.

Project Details

What we need

  • Access the online platform of an interactive game on "Twinery.org" where you will be working in an HTML-based platform.
  • Translate the English version of our game to Traditional Chinese from the online platform.
  • Coordinate with our project management team to ensure translations are clear and engaging.
  • **NOTE: no actual coding is required, but an understanding of HTML and a high comfort level working with IT-related tools and platforms.**

Background

FirstHand, a six-session programme, aims to inspire young people to broaden their channels of empathy, as they immerse themselves into the hypothetical lives of foreign domestic workers in Hong Kong. We are looking for a volunteer who can help us create a (translated) Traditional Chinese version of our interactive "Twine" game. No actual coding is required, but an understanding of HTML and a high comfort level working with IT-related tools and platforms.

What we have

Login credentials to our interactive game on our online platform "Twinery.org", which will contain the complete English version of our game.

Why this is important

This online translation work will help HELP for Domestic Workers expand the reach of its advocacy to the children of local Hong Kong communities, in a fun and creative way!
