PhET Translators are math and science educators familiar with PhET simulations who are committed to supporting access and impact of PhET simulations by:
The PhET Translator Network follows a minimum 2-month cycle in which new members are inducted through technical training in the use of the translation utility, develop personal translation goals, complete translations, and pass through quality assurance with a peer. Participants may elect to commit as little or as much time as they desire—PhET simulations take on average 30 minutes to 2 hours to translate.
Members of the PhET Translator Network are recognized for their contributions and have opportunities to receive a digital certificate verifying their hours, letters of recommendation, opportunities to connect with other translators, and the chance to be featured on PhET’s Global Initiatives page and the PhET newsletter.
As PhET works toward covering the languages of the African continent, PhET would like to initiate this process with the following languages. Speakers of other languages are welcome to apply to the PhET Translator Network, and may be contacted at a future date.
