The Global Down Syndrome Foundation is committed to sharing the best information we have about Down syndrome with others, including those who live in different countries or speak different languages.
We welcome trained translators who can help us translate our materials such as website pages, pamphlets, brochures and/or educational materials.
If you are a trained translator and would like to donate your translation skills to the Global Down Syndrome Foundation, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
