Hi this is probably quite an unusual question but does anyone know anybody who is fluent in the Amazonas language Awajun as well as...

...Spanish and/or English, and who would be willing to volunteer a couple of hours for an interesting NGO project in Lima? Are there any translation colleges or schools that I could contact? Thanks for your help everyone!


Country: Peru


If l'm not wrong the Aguaruanas are the ones who speak this languages, and maybe you can contact a translation agency, or better you can go to the University Ricardo Palma where there was a course of linguistics applied on indigenous communitites. Here i give you the link : to see some information at the bottom of the page

And replying the other part of your question, l'm a student of translation at Unifé university and you can contact translation agencies ,there are a lot on the yellow pages , here i'll give you the link also:
I hope it can help !
Hey! I know some people that work in development programs in the Nacional Society of Enviromental Law. Maybe they could help you.

I would recommend you to check with people at two Universities: Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos () and Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru ()
I think this are the main Universities studying Amazon cultures and languages. You can find some info when using their own pages search options.
Good luck!
