We’ve come across a requirement for Japanese translation volunteers. It’s an exciting opportunity in which Japanese language students can use their language skills in a live and fairly challenging environment – a valuable learning opportunity for language students. Last year the marathon had over 14,400 runners participating from Japan; this year the numbers are projected to increase to 15,000.
This requirement for Japanese translators is for the upcoming 37th Honolulu Marathon. Around 150 volunteer translators are needed. They would be assigned to work with doctors and nurses who will be looking after the Japanese runners while being posted at various medical stations built along the length of the course which is 26.2 miles long. The Japanese translators required should preferably be advanced Japanese language students from prep schools and colleges. The 37th Honolulu Marathon would take place on the 13th of Dec and translators would be required to work in shifts of 4 a.m. to 9:30 a.m and 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
