Médecins Sans Frontières
POSITION BASED IN ANY MSF-OCBA HUB SUBJECTED TO FEASIBILITIES
Médecins Sans Frontières is an international independent medical-humanitarian organization, which aids populations in distress, to victims of natural or man-made disasters and to victims of armed conflict, without discrimination and irrespective of race, religion, creed or political affiliation.
MSF is a civil society initiative that brings together individuals committed to the assistance of other human beings in crisis. As such MSF is by choice an association. Each individual working with MSF does it out of conviction and is ready to uphold the values and principles of MSF.
The MSF movement is built around five operational directorates supported by MSF’s 21 sections, 24 associations and other offices together worldwide. MSF OCBA is one of those directorates. The operations are implemented by field teams and the mission coordination teams; together with the organizational units based in Barcelona, Athens and decentralised in Nairobi, Dakar and Amman. The field operations are guided and supported by 5 Operational Cells, the Emergency Unit and other departments supporting operations, including the Learning Unit.
JOB CONTEXT AND GENERAL OBJECTIVE
The Learning Unit works closely with all MSF-OCBA departments with the objective of providing adequate learning solutions to the diverse needs of the missions, teams and individuals across the organization. The learning needs addressed range from induction to managerial to technical issues, including many medical, logistics, human resources aspects that are central to the success of the operations.
Some of the courses we have generated need to be translated and available in other languages, to help the field to have access to them and generate the knowledge transfer. The working languages in the MSF office in Barcelona are English, Spanish and Catalan. The courses are fully developed in English and then translated into other languages (French, Spanish, Arabic and Portuguese).
Given the nature of MSF, we need to make sure that new MSF courses are available into the main three international languages used in most countries where we work. The translations need to be both appropriate to the diverse workforce that constitutes MSF (25 countries, many staff not entirely fluent in these international languages) and to the medical-humanitarian nature of the organisation.
The Translator will support and oversee the translation into French the PMR-Fieldco Course.She/he will mostly collaborate with Medical and OPS learning referents and learning unit officer working on the translation of the modules.
