The Borneo Orang Utan Survival Foundation is an Indonesian non-profit organisation, whose mission it is to contribute to the conservation of the Orang Utan and their habitats.

Founded in 1991 the BOS Foundation has grown to the largest Orang Utan conservation organisation in the world.

With the growth, the communication became more and more difficult!

Today BOS has sister organisations in 12 countries.

So, many texts are translated from Indonesian to English - a great part is done by volunteers. Besides of needing translators we are in need of English speaking (preferably mother tongue) persons, to edit English written texts. It would be perfect, if you have some experience already!

As we don''t have much money for employees, we cannot pay you for your job. We hope that the work for the Orang Utans and the rainforest will be satisfying enough, besides, there are many nice people to meet...

for more information on the organisation and its projects:

www.create-rainforest.org

Please contact me, if you are interested!

I am willing to do something like this and I don't need any money for it, But I don't know if I am qualified enough and ofcourse I can't do it full-time. I am Dutch, but my english is reasonably well developed and I have great affinity with the orang utans.

I know it's a bit late to post and stuff, but if it's just rearranging English texts around to make them better, I guess I can give you a hand. I have a bit of time on my hands as I've just graduated from University.

If you still need help, drop me a PM and I'll see how I can help you.

LOL! You guys are good! I'm back in Indo in late July. Could be something cool to do in the long warm evenings. I'll check back to this forum then, if it's not too late. Have to link up to the web from a rural villa in central Bali. All things going well, I'd love to support the cause in some way.

btw... is there an organisation that protects PolarBears???? LOL
