English Editor Volunteers Wanted
for Khenpo Sodargye at Larung Gar Buddhist Academy
As Buddhists, our fundamental aspiration is to awaken minds. An important part of our mission is to share precious Dharma teachings with people from all over the world in forms that are both relevant and applicable to life in the 21st century.
In recent years, we have been working to make university lectures and teachings by acclaimed author and esteemed spiritual master, Khenpo Sodargye Rinpoche, available in both English video and book formats.
In order to assist us in the important task of translating these teachings from Chinese into English, we’re looking for passionate English editors who can help us make a difference.
We would love to hear from you if you’re a native or near-native English speaker with excellent written skills and experience in polishing English text; if you possess the ability to enhance the overall readability of a translation while utilizing a western flavor of prose; and if you have the ability, talent and mindset to reach the widest Western audience possible.
To join our team, you don’t necessarily require professional translation experience. However, ideally we are looking for individuals who have some of the following attributes:
- Basic knowledge of Buddhism Dharma or have interest in Dharma;
- Excellent English writing skill;
- Able to contribute 3-4 hours per week for at least 6 months
- Available for regular correspondence via email
