Volunteer Translators Network

The International Education Committee (IEC) launched the Volunteer Translators Network Program to make ASM web-based materials more accessible to international members.  Through this program, ASM members can assist in translating important resources, such as the MicrobeLibrary, into other languages.  Currently, the IEC is working with Spanish, French, and Portuguese-speaking members and actively seeking additional volunteers.  Other languages will be added in the near future.
