Seeking Cantonese native speaker to translate materials
Tufts and SMFA students in the Food as Sculpture since 1960 course (VMS/ENVS) created placemats and videos to share tips on how to keep healthy eating habits during the pandemic. Their work was inspired by food-based art projects that incorporate a range of ingredients. The students collaborated with scientists at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University and the Greater Boston Chinese Golden Age Center to provide advice tailored to elderly residents in Boston’s Chinatown— a community that is particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus. In order to allow the Cantonese-speaking public to make the most out of viewing the placemats and videos, we are looking for one or more bilingual students who can:
- Translate the contents of the placemats;
- Lay out the translation into the placemats, while ensuring the integrity of the existing design in Power Point or Keynote.
- Record a voiceover translation, for ten 3-minute videos, from English to Cantonese (or possibly Mandarin).
The course is co-sponsored by and in collaboration with Tisch College. We can offer 15$/hour, with an expected time commitment of 10 hrs. If you are interested, respond to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 9th. The position will remain open until filled.
