Translators and Proofreaders needed

 Japan Civil Net and the Cabinet Office for Volunteer Support are looking to provide more information in English and need your help
Translators - Japanese to English mostly。 please let me know if you are interested and i will introduce you to the appropriate persons.
Proofreaders: Native users of English with a good sense of English writing for PR and outreach.
* Please note that the translation to date is good but communicate in a Japanese manner. The materials in final versions (web info, press releases)  are not to be chokuyaku but to convey the information to nonJapanese readers.
* Most of this work will be done online.

 * thanks for your comments! i have sent the first 10 to JCN and i will send the next responses to  the Tasukeai office .... keep contacting me if you have some time to help out!

    Hi Sara - could you tell me how to contact you? I'm on Twitter @juniorbird. Thanks!

  2. Hi, I'd be more than happy to help with proofreading, if it's all online. I'm an English teacher, Native English speaker, MA in Linguistics, et. al. I live in Yamaguchi, so I can't do any face-to-face meetings, but if that's ok, please do email me. jdrion (at)

    I would like to volunteer as a translator, depending on the work volume. My hours will be limited, only during the evening as I work during the day time. If that is still OK, I will be more than happy to help! I live in Okayama, and do J to E or vice versa. I am @oguchan0401 at Twitter. Thanks!
