Streamline Language Translations

Organization: accesSOS
Organization's Mission: To make emergency help accessible
CEO: Gabriella Wong

📜 Scope & Details

Background: We went through a product re-design and need to sift through our previous language translations and moved over to our new spreadsheet. Some new words were added in the redesign so there may be some missing words that have not been translated. We need a more streamlined process to incorporate our multiple languages, while accommodating new changes to the language and UI of the app.
Impact: This will help us reach populations that need emergency access but do not communicate using English
Time Frame: 4 - 6 weeks
Where: Work remotely from anywhere
The text of our app translated in 5 languages and added to our language translation spreadsheet
