Free Translation For Knowledge Sharing Initiative
Who Are We?
Down To Five is a website dedicated to helping our readers find the best products and advice in a certain category by narrowing the available choices or steps down to five.
Knowledge sharing is at the core of our business and we strive to help our readers learn and make informed buying decisions after reading our fun and informative articles. Examples include guides on:
- Pest control such as how to kill roaches
- Choosing the best record player
- Choosing the best pillow for neck pain
- Choosing the best memory foam mattress
In addition to our annual scholarship program, we are excited to be launching our knowledge sharing initiative whereby we translate interesting and enriching articles found online for free. We plan to also expand this by introducing new programs that will aid the public as we grow further.
Why Are We Doing This?
Our aim is to help people learn something new every day – without language being a barrier.
Like almost anyone at all who has ever used the Internet, we have benefited greatly from the vast amount of free information online and we wish to help expand this further. It is our way of giving back to society as well as increasing exposure for our company.
What Languages Do We Offer?
At the moment, our multiethnic team is able to provide translations in English, French, German, Malay, Chinese and Japanese.
We understand that certain articles may contain technical terms or jargons that may require the skills of a professional translator. In such cases, we will procure the aid of native speakers or external translators from similar programs such as ours and if necessary, at our own cost.
Our applicants absolutely do not have to worry about paying anything at all to support this project. As we are doing this on our own time however and we do not receive compensation for our translation work, please understand that we may not be able to fulfil any expectation you may have with regard to our turnaround time.
Who’s Eligible For This Free Service?
We do not have strict requirements when it comes to eligibility. Large organizations or individuals alike, for commercial purposes or otherwise, are welcome to apply for our service.
However, please take note that we do give priority to non-profit causes that offer information for free.
