PULP’s mission is two-fold. First, PULP provides free translation services to non-profit organizations and an opportunity for language learners to improve and make use of their language skills, both written and verbal. Second, PULP seeks to help extend the impact of these organizations’ efforts by helping them to break the language and cultural barriers.
Every Thursday at 4:30, we meet in Frist 212 and translate documents for non-profit organizations. We work in several languages, including Spanish, French, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), and Korean; we also have individual students working in Russian, Japanese, Arabic, German, and Portuguese. And our clients are located everywhere, from Princeton to Beijing. We accept people of all language levels, so even if you’re learning, feel free to come out and join us! It’s a great way to improve your language skills and help a great cause. Also check out the “Projects We’ve Worked on” tab to see some translations we’ve done.
Originally begun in 2014, PULP is seeking to revitalize the Language Fellows Program, which pairs language learners with native or highly advanced speakers of the target language to help foster language learning not only inside, but also outside of, Princeton's classrooms. This project is spearheaded by Jazmyn Blackburn '19.
