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 need translation from Dutch into English of a great article comparing travel destinations. It shows that one doesn't need to fly far away but can find similarly marvellous places in Europe:

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have the article in Dutch, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the contact and approvement of the author, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $7,098 , allowing us to do great work with a very limited budget.

We're running a campaign called "Let's Stay Grounded". It includes great stories about grounded travel, i.e. travel without airplane.

Our Mission

STAY GROUNDED is a global network of more than 150 local airport opposition groups, climate justice activists, NGOs, trade unionists, academics, groups supporting alternatives to aviation like night trains, and organisations supporting communities which struggle against offset projects or biofuel plantations. We aim to exchange experiences, support each other, and campaign together for a reduction of aviation and its negative impacts. We also engage in fighting problematic climate strategies like offsetting emissions and biofuels. Our vision is a form of mobility that rests inside the planetary boundaries and is not at the expense of others.


Was great working with Guido! Very quick and put valuable additional thoughts to the project!

Translation Project

Stay Grounded is an organisation that has both feet firmly planted on the ground (pun intended). They're easy to work with and happy with one's contribution. I'm pursuing some additional ideas with them and it would be great what can come of their work.
