It's the Amharic & Tigrinya Language Week - join our webinars and contest

Hello! We are excited to start with you the first Amharic&Tigrinya Language week.

Here’s what we can do together:

:white_check_mark: Participate in the Amharic and Tigrinya translation contests. If you speak both languages, you can participate in both. The three best translations will win a prize of 150 USD, 125 USD, and 100 USD respectively. All participants will receive a certificate. You have time until Monday 15th to submit your translation and be the winner.

After you submit your translation, you will receive an e-mail with a link to evaluate the translations of your fellow TWB translators. You need to evaluate 3 translations. Please be mindful of the different language variants when reviewing other translator’s submissions. For example, some people may speak Tigrinya from Ethiopia and others from Eritrea :sunflower:

Participate here for Amharic and here for Tigrinya.

:white_check_mark: Tess, our Project Manager for the Tigray response, will show you the impact of the work that TWB is doing together with H2H in response to the Tigray Crisis. Join our webinar on Wednesday 10th March at 6 pm Eastern Africa Time. Register here!

:white_check_mark: Learn more about Translation Quality at TWB: which are the main challenges? Which guidelines should you follow? How can we learn from each other? Register here for the webinar on Thursday 11th March at 6 pm Eastern Africa Time.

Anyone is welcome to join our webinars, even if they don’t speak Amharic or Tigrinya! :hugs:

For any activity you participate in, you will receive a certificate. Plus, when you join our webinars, we will enter you in a prize draw of 100 USD.

Let’s have a fantastic week together!
