Aztec Ruins National Monument is a UNESCO World Heritage site for the ancestral pueblo culture. This site protects, preserves and interprets archeological sites along the Animas River, including an excavated Great House and the only reconstructed Great Kiva in the Southwest. International visitation is important, and additional translations of trail guides would be greatly appreciated!
These volunteers will translate the Aztec West Trail Guide into currently unavailable languages to help diverse audiences connect with this cultural and historical resource. International languages (ex: Japanese, Italian, Korean) and indigenous languages (ex: Navajo) are needed! Additional translation opportunities may exist depending on visitor need (park map, commonly requested handouts, etc).
The volunteer will need to supply their own computer equipment, and will need to have word processing skills for manipulating text and images to create a final document. Park staff will be able to assist with technical questions, but the volunteer should be proficient in both language translation and computer skills.
Languages will be selected on a case-by-case basis depending on visitor need and staff availability for assistance. Due to the short-term nature of this project and the seasonal nature of available resources, a telephone conversation will be scheduled to discuss logistics.
Note: This volunteer opportunity could be completed remotely, but having a prior familiarity with this site would be preferred when virtual volunteering.
