Spanish Translation Program and Animal Health Literacy Intern

Job Title:

Spanish Translation Program and Animal Health Literacy

Agency:

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

Sub-Agency

Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM)

Session:

Summer 2024

Format/Location:

Remote

Hours Per Week:

40

Job Description:

The applicant will split their time between two projects:

1. CVM’s Spanish Translation Program (STP)—The STP began in 2019 to address the lack of Spanish content on CVM’s website, and since then, we’ve created CVM en español and posted over 160 Spanish webpages. Before any translation can be posted on our website, it must be triaged by a member of the Education & Outreach Staff and then reviewed by a CVM volunteer reviewer. There’s currently a backlog of around 25 translated webpages that need to be triaged and reviewed by CVM. At this time, the center doesn’t have a contract with a translation services company to translate new pages into Spanish.

2. Animal Health Literacy (AHL)—The AHL section of CVM’s website includes animal health-related content that’s easy to read and easy to understand. The articles are for consumers, including pet owners, animal producers, and kids.

If the applicant is not fluent in Spanish, they will triage already-translated webpages and research (and possibly write) a new AHL article in English. If the applicant is fluent in Spanish, they will triage and review already-translated webpages, translate additional webpages into Spanish, and research (and possibly write) a new AHL article in English.

Items of note:

  • A translated webpage is first triaged to ensure basic accuracy and correct formatting. This includes making sure all embedded hyperlinks are correct and that the translation follows CVM’s Spanish Style Guide regarding proper capitalization and consistent translation of CVM-specific terms. Triaging DOES NOT require fluency in Spanish.
  • Then, the translated webpage is reviewed to ensure Spanish accuracy and cultural sensitivity. Reviewing DOES require fluency in Spanish and knowledge of CVM’s work.
  • The topic of the new AHL article in English will be determined closer to the internship start date.

Qualifications:

Preferred Majors - biology, animal science, pre-veterinary science, pre-law, pre-medicine, public health, international studies, business, government administration, or information science

Experience with Microsoft Office and database software. Previous office experience is helpful, but not required.
