Dear fellow students,
We are the Student’s Council of the University of Stuttgart (stuvus). stuvus consists of volunteers that organize events like the UNO or the CampusBeach, get involved in university politics and, of course, help students and answer their requests.
We currently work on the translation of our website (stuvus.de) in order to include as many students as possible and we publish posts on Instagram and Facebook both in German and in English in order to include international students as well. This inclusion is very important to us as we want to support international students during their stay in Stuttgart and we also think that everyone benefits from cultural exchange. Getting involved in stuvus projects also means that one makes many new friends which is especially great for international students.
Each month, stuvus publishes a newsletter that includes information about studying at the University of Stuttgart (e.g. during the corona crisis) and information about the student council’s current activities. The newsletter varies in length and content depending on the current situation. The articles in the newsletter are usually written by the departments and working groups of stuvus. Many of the articles’ writers have trouble translating the articles into English and the Department for Public Relations (which is responsible for publishing the newsletter) has neither the time nor the staff to provide an English translation for every article sent in. This is the part in which you get involved!
We are looking for a person or a group that wants to translate our articles from German to English. You don’t need a Bachelor’s degree or job experience. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a native speaker or not. The only criteria is that you can translate texts and that you enjoy voluntary work. If you want to take a look at old newsletters (that are unfortunately only in German), you can find them at stuvus.de/newsletter.
More information about stuvus is available on our website (stuvus.de) and we are also happy to answer your questions via Facebook and Instagram (@stuvus.unistuttgart), no matter whether those questions are about this possibility to get involved or general questions. You can also send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t hesitate to contact us!
You don’t want to translate articles but getting involved in the student council sounds good to you? Take a look at our website and check if any departments or working groups sound interesting. Unfortunately, not all have been translated yet as we are currently working on the translation. However, if you have any questions, we are very happy to answer them.
