First published on 06/29/2023, and last updated on 07/03/2023

The ICCA Consortium seeks translators, interpreters, and proofreaders working with Portuguese. We’re about to publish our Self-Strengthening Process Guidance in Portuguese as part of our efforts to disseminate the information in multiple languages and support our diverse membership throughout their processes.

What we offer

  • The opportunity to work in a multicultural environment.
  • Continuous learning from the custodians of territories of life.
  • Developing professional networks.
  • Volunteer and remunerated assignments, depending on our available resources.
  • Work from home or from anywhere you like.

What we need:

  • Passionate and committed professionals interested in topics related to territories of life (conservation of nature, Indigenous Peoples, communities, biodiversity, etc.)
  • Linguists with Portuguese as their first language. We welcome people from any Lusophone background. In particular:
    • English > Portuguese translators
    • Portuguese proofreaders
    • English<>Portuguese interpreters

Communication across continents, languages, and cultures is part of our daily life in the ICCA Consortium. That is why we strive to continue improving our capacities to share stories, experiences, and information in inclusive and accessible ways with our membership and partners. We work with a growing group of collaborators and volunteers to support us with linguistic assignments.

If you want to be involved in something meaningful and have time to dedicate to our diverse and colorful movement. We are happy to welcome you into our growing team of collaborators and volunteers!

If you are interested, we will discuss the scope of the tasks with you. The decision to engage you will be based on your skills, availability, and knowledge of the ICCA Consortium and ICCAs. We will work closely with you to ensure high-quality translation and interpretation.


If you are interested in joining us, please get in touch with our Linguistic Support Coordinator (EN<>ES-PT):

Daniela Campos Rubio

In your expression of interest, please mention your motivation, the languages you speak and between which language(s) you can translate and/or interpret. Please also note your experience in translation, interpretation, and proofreading; and your availability.

Thanks in advance. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
