Hippocrates once said, “The chief virtue that language can have is clarity.”
How would you like to use your experience in editing and passion for clear writing to impact the world for eternity?
As a supported* editor, you would be responsible for organizing and editing technical and academic material. If you believe, as we do, that all languages are of value, form an integral part of peoples’ identity, and have the potential to serve them in a rapidly changing world, then you can be part of a team serving minority language communities worldwide.
