Seafood Alliance for Legality & Traceability Request for Quotes - Native Swahili Speaker

Date of Issuance: August 12, 2022
Quote Submission Deadline: August 19 by 5:00 PM PST
Period of Performance: August 26, 2022 to March 31, 2023
Location of Work: Remote
Summary
The goal of this Request for Quotes (RFQ) is to identify a consultant that is a native Swahili speaker with experience in seafood traceability to provide a technical translation of select resources to be used during the application of the Comprehensive eCDT Principles and Pathway in Tanzania. Selected resources can include, but are not limited to, reports, worksheets, and audio-visual resources.
Background
FishWise promotes the health and recovery of ocean ecosystems by providing innovative market-based tools to the seafood industry, supporting sustainability through environmentally and socially responsible business practices. The Seafood Alliance for Legality and Traceability (SALT) is a global alliance for knowledge exchange and action to promote legal and sustainable fisheries through improved transparency in seafood supply chains. SALT brings together the seafood industry, governments and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) to accelerate learning and support collaboration on innovative solutions for legal and sustainable seafood, with a particular focus on traceability–the ability to track the movement of seafood through supply chains. SALT is a public-private partnership between USAID and the Packard, Moore, and Walton Family Foundations and is implemented by FishWise, a non-profit sustainable seafood consultancy.
In 2021, SALT launched the Comprehensive Electronic Catch Documentation and Traceability (eCDT) Principles and Pathway to support the design and implementation of eCDT programs that address ecological, social, and economic objectives. Currently, this content is available in English, Vietnamese, Spanish, Bahasa Indonesian, and French but SALT wishes to make it available in Swahili as well because of our engagement in Tanzania. At the end of September, SALT will be hosting a codesign workshop with local partners, Aqua-Farms Organization and a Senior Advisor, to facilitate multi-stakeholder collaboration to inform an electronic traceability implementation strategy for the octopus fishery in Kilwa District grounded in the Comprehensive eCDT Principles. During this workshop, attendees will need access to resources in Swahili (e.g., The Comprehensive eCDT Principles and Pathway). Additionally, SALT will use the learning from the Tanzanian Principles application to create new resources and improve the Comprehensive Traceability Principles and Pathway guidance for future users.
Scope of Work
SALT is seeking a consultant that is a native Swahili speaker and has technical experience with seafood traceability to:
  • Prepare resources to be shared with native Swahili speakers that will be accessed online and printed for use. In preparation for an upcoming meeting in Swahili, the consultant will translate resources to be used at the codesign event at the end of September 2022.
    • Translate a ~5,200 words of text to ensure translations are correct and technical topics are represented accurately. You can find the English version of the text here.
  • After the co-design meeting, resources published in reference to the project will be available in Swahili.
  • SALT staff will be available to answer any questions the consultant may have about the technical content
