Requesting Proposals for the translation of website materials

OVERVIEW:

The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape (PCAR) is looking for a consultant or organization to translate materials on SafeSecureKids.org from English to Spanish language.

BACKGROUND:

The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape works to end sexual violence and advocates for the rights and needs of sexual assault victims. In addition to Pennsylvania-specific work, PCAR operates the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) and is a partner in Raliance.

SafeSecureKids.org is designed to help parents, teachers and caregivers keep children safe from sexual abuse. The website features free, helpful resources, videos and interactive learning activities to help adults have important conversations with children about bodies, boundaries and consent.

SafeSecureKids.org, is a joint partnership between Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape (PCAR) and d’Vinci Interactive and is supported in part by The Commonwealth of PA, The Hershey Company, Penn State Health and Highmark. Learn more about supporting this project to keep children safe, happy, and free from sexual abuse.

EXPECTATIONS:

We are seeking an organization or consultant who has the ability to translate materials on SafeSecureKids.org from English to Spanish language. Our goal is to make these resources more accessible to Spanish-speaking communities. We acknowledge that transcreation of materials is best practice, and ideally we would like to make sure all content is culturally relevant. Therefore, proposals that can ensure culturally relevant translation/ transcreation and testing with Spanish-speaking audiences are strongly encouraged.
