In this presentation Attila will share his experience and views on pro bono work, focusing on the main question: Under what circumstances can free work and professional ethics be reconciled? The description of the Solidarités team's workflow will also show how high quality can be achieved in team work – and pinpoint the components that are most often missing in crowdsourced projects.
Attila’s experience in the field stems from a three-year collaboration with the Solidarités team (www.proz.com/team/664), set up in 2007 with the double aim of providing pro bono linguistic aid to humanitarian NGOs and of creating a place for translators to network and learn. 2009 was a milestone for the team: its main beneficiary, the French NGO Solidarités created paid 3-month internship positions for two team members who had just started their professional career. The success of this first internship program led to a second one in 2010 – and to a third position, to which attendees of the conference may apply.
