Welcome to Translate4Conservation

Translate4Conservation is a new initiative of the Films4Conservation website. There are a lot of people out there who want to volunteer to do conservation work, and the new technologies of Web 2.0 applications allows you to do just that from your very own home. We are currently uploading raw video footage containing conservation messages from our friends in the field in Indonesia and we are looking for help in getting these transcribed and translated so we can edit the interviews into meaningful conservation films that can be used by the conservationists themselves in Indonesia, but will also reach a wider public through the internet, and may then also feed on to longer conservation documentaries.

This is an exciting and new way to get involved with conservation and by joining us here and volunteering your time and skills you will be working on the frontline of conservation, even if you are on the opposite side of the globe from Indonesia.
