Project details

What we need
  • Specific copy from one document (up to 1000 words) translated from one language to one other of the Organization's choice
  • Note: If you need more than 1000 words translated or copy translated into more than one language, please post additional versions of this project
Additional details

We have a flyer to help people find affordable healthcare at their nearest Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). We need help translating this flyer into Korean, Vietnamese, and Chinese to help those whose native language is not English.

What we have in place
  • We currently have the original flyer in English, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a version of the flyer translated into Spanish, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $1,768 , allowing us to broaden our scope of work to more immigrant communities across Georgia and understand the disparities they face when seeking healthcare.

We have heard from immigrant communities that, even though there are resources to help them obtain free or affordable care, they are often only advertised in English. As a result, many families wind up going to clinics that charge exorbitant fees to those who cannot provide a U.S. ID, subsequently deterring immigrants from seeking out preventive or ongoing care. We seek to make it known that there are places to get affordable care in the native languages of those who need them.

Our mission

To champion Georgia's consumers through education and advocacy.

What we do

Founded in 2002, Georgia Watch is the state's leading consumer advocacy organization, focused on issues that impact your wallet and your quality of life. Georgia Watch is a non-profit, nonpartisan 501(c)3 organization that utilizes education and advocacy to help give consumers a strong ally to level the playing field with powerful special interests in the state. We work every day to create a Georgia that is a model for consumer protection.

While we serve all Georgia consumers, we are particularly dedicated to ensuring that the most vulnerable of our population have representation and access to necessary resources, and are aware of their rights in the consumer marketplace. To fulfill our mission, Georgia Watch works closely with the public, coalition partners, legislators, regulators, and the media to serve as an advocate as well as a trusted resource for information and guidance.

Ultimately, Georgia Watch supports Georgians who may feel their interests are not represented on the floor of the legislature, in state courts, or before the Public Service Commission. Through education, we seek to help Georgians harness their own power to become effective advocates for themselves.

As a tax-exempt organization, Georgia Watch does not engage in partisan political activity. No organizational resources are used in connection with political campaign activities, or in support or opposition of any candidates for public office.

Georgia Watch does not provide legal advice or representation. If you need legal advice or assistance, please contact a licensed attorney.
