NUS students volunteer as translators for foreign workers

A team of 40 to 50 volunteers – mainly international students – from NUS have volunteered to help address translation needs, typically for migrant workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The initiative started with Assoc Prof Leong Ching, Dean of the Office of Student Affairs at NUS, who learnt of a doctor’s request for Bengali and Tamil translation.
