When: Fridays 12 - 1:15 PM (Paris Time), Saturdays 1-2:30 PM (Paris Time); possibly other days.

IMPORTANT: The content of what you will hear is private, you wont be able to share it with loved ones! Be sure you and they understand that. We will have individual conversations with you, where you may express any emotions that have been triggered during your translations. Be aware that we work with war victims and that the content sometimes is quite difficult.

ALSO IMPORTANT: You must be reliable and appear for every meeting. We and the people with whom we are working strongly depend on this!!!
