Calling all linguists...........!

Are you fluent in more than one language? Are you an archival professional or a student? Do you want to get involved with ICA? Now is your chance to help us make ICA a truly multilingual organisation!

We need volunteers to help us translate our documents into as wide a variety of languages as possible. You can help to translate a range of material ranging from our e-newsletter to professional standards, from minutes and reports of meetings to conference papers.

What language skills are we looking for? If you are fluent in English and French we have particular need of you at the moment...but we are also seeking volunteers from the Spanish, Chinese, Arabic and Russian language groups as a matter of urgency. However, we welcome all potential volunteers.

What can we offer you in return? Individual membership of ICA as well as a reduced delegate rate for our conferences are offered as an immediate benefit. But you will also become part of a dynamic team working toward making ICA a truly international organisation, you will be helping disseminate our publications to as wide an audience as possible and you will increase your own professional knowledge and expertise!

Are you interested? If so, please contact Margaret Turner, Translations and Publications Adviser (
We look forward to hearing from you!
