Volunteer assignment:

Webmaster for Arabic PEOI


The plan for this project is to develop a Arabic version of PEOI. The Arabic PEOI web site is especially intended to assist Iraqi people (women in particular) to acquire professional skills to become more productive and help the economy recover.

The webmaster will need not create an entire web site as the English set of pages will be transferred to the Arabic web site. He/she must be knowledgeable about how to upload files, handle Linux folders, verify HTML and use CGI. He/she must distribute work to translators for text files that are accessible through PEOI procedures. His work load is about 5-10 hours per week with minimum of 3 hours in any given week.

This webmaster must be an Arabic native speaker since the material handled must be comprehensible to him/her.

Additional explanations of the work to be performed can be found in the "Authors" section which explains the course files structure.

The Arabic web site is at http://www.peoi.org/peoiar.html. As you will see some translation has started but much remains to be done. Additional Arabic team members are urgently needed.

All tasks can be carried out from home on your own computer and at your own time. Volunteers can join in forum discussions of issues of common interest. Registration is necessary to participate in a forum. Arabic volunteer tranlators should register as translators, and make sure to join the Arabic translation team. Other volunteers are invited to register as volunteer staff members. For more details, pease write a short message indicating the volunteer opportunity you are interested in, attach a recent resume, and email to appropriate person in contact information.
