Translations/Interpretations

 

The NALRC provides quality services in the area of translation and interpretation of various African languages. If you need these services, please contact us. We have a resource list of translators and interpreters, not restricted to African languages, and open to anyone who speaks a less commonly taught language. If you want to be included in the list, please let us know.

 

 

Job Opportunities/Advertisements

 

Many scholars, instructors, and students in the field of less commonly taught languages visit the NALRC website. Please inform us of any African language related vacancies that you want to fill in your programs. We will be happy to advertise them at no cost.
