Great news! The application deadline for the Translation Assistance Fund—the fund that assists the efforts of our Fellowship to translate OA literature—has been changed from twice a year to a rolling monthly basis. Applications received by the WSO will now be forwarded to the International Publications and Translations Committee for consideration the following month. We hope that this will both make the application process easier and increase our capacity for supporting our many OA members who speak different languages.
Overeaters Anonymous has more than US$85,600 to support groups in translating OA literature and materials, such as the OA, Inc. Bylaws and the Business Conference Policy Manual. For suggestions on how to start the process and complete a high-quality translation reflecting the spirit of OA, see our Translations page, our Guidelines for Translation, and our Translation presentation slideshow. Be sure to check out the list of Digital Files in Translation attached at the end of the PDF of the Guidelines for Translation, which shows what translated literature is already available in your language.
