Searching for Literary Translators

Once-in-a-Lifetime project

The Episcopal Church, with headquarters in the United States, is looking for three professional literary translators with demonstrable experience translating religious or liturgical texts to work as consultants in an important, high-visibility project that will have a lasting influence in the work of the Church for many years to come.

The ideal candidates will be fluent in English and native speakers of one additional language: Spanish, French or Haitian Creole.

Because this is a large-scale project that will undergo several tiers of review and revisions, we require a professional who can commit to the work for the entire time it will take to bring it to fruition—approximately 1 ½ years.

You do not need to be based in the United States, but you will need to have reliable Internet access, and be comfortable using email, and online workflow management and meeting tools.

We will only reply to candidates who are a good match and meet the minimum requirements.

About The Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church welcomes all who worship Jesus Christ, in 109 dioceses and regional areas in 17 nations. The Episcopal Church is a member province of the worldwide Anglican Communion. The mission of the church, as stated in the Book of Common Prayer’s catechism, is "to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ." As part of that mission, we are following Jesus into loving, liberating and life-giving relationship with God, with each other and with the earth as the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement. 
We seek every day to love God with our whole heart, mind and soul, and to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:36-40).
