Help us create 100 stories in French and Spanish!

Posted by Menaka Raman on July 28, 2017

Bonjour! Hola! Como estas?

StoryWeaver is a digital repository of openly licensed, multilingual stories from Pratham Books.

At StoryWeaver, we believe that all children, everywhere should have access to a never ending stream of stories in their mother tongue. It’s probably why we’re always setting fun challenges for ourselves and our community to help create more engaging mother tongue literacy content for young readers. The Pratham Books mission to put ‘a book in every child’s hand’ has always motivated our community to volunteer their time and skills to past campaigns like Weave-a-Story and Freedom to Read. We’re back with a new challenge now!

Help us add 100 stories in French and Spanish on StoryWeaver

Join our growing pool of community translators in French and Spanish, and help add 100 stories in each of these two languages to StoryWeaver. We realise this is a big ask, so to help you out, we’ve integrated the Google Translate tool which will auto-translate the story with a high level of accuracy. You’ll need to use your expertise to ensure that the translation is error-free, nuanced and child-friendly.
