Seeking Translation Support for our Oral History Collections

Wed, December 07, 2022 6:30 PM | Anonymous

Our Digital Collections Assistants through the SHARP grant moderated by the  American Historical Association have been making steady progress, completing transcripts for over 80 interviews in our oral history collection!

We've run across a handful of words in our transcription work that we need some help in translating! We are seeking speakers fluent in Modern Greek, Arabic, German, Russian, and Hungarian to help us with just a few words and phrases! Translation support would likely take under 15 minutes, and could be completed over Zoom, email, or in-person. Individuals would help with the proper spelling and accents on words for the written transcripts, as well as their literal translation. Contact if you're able to help us with this!

Our thanks to Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫˀ language-keeper Steve Henhawk for his translation and transliteration support with completing our Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫˀ (Cayuga) interview transcripts!
