Fundraising Project, Kremenets, Ukraine Yizkor BookRon DoctorIn progress
Volunteers have thus far handled most of the translation. However, a total of 615 pages remain to be translated, 310 in the Lerner yizkor book and another 305 in the booklets. In order to complete these translations expeditiously, JewishGen needs to engage a professional translator. The project coordinator will select the order in which to translate the chapters and will work closely with the translator to ensure a grammatically correct and idiomatic translation. Specific tasks the project coordinator will perform include proofreading, editing, and preparing the work for submission to the Yizkor Book Project.
