Translators without Borders (TWB)

Translators without Borders, a non-profit organization, envisions a world where knowledge knows no barriers. The mission of Translators without Borders is to provide people access to vital knowledge in their language by connecting nonprofit organizations with our community of translators, building local language capacity and raising awareness about language barriers. 

Translators without Borders volunteers translate millions of words each year, focusing on different types of humanitarian translations: crisis translations needed urgently to inform people in crisis, translations that support an NGO’s operations, and translations that directly support people in need. The organization is building language capacity in East Africa through its first translator training center in Nairobi, Kenya, where trainees focus on healthcare content in Kiswahili and acquire the skills for a career in translation, and is piloting its Words of Relief crisis relief network. Each year TWB translates more than 7 million words through its crowdsourced workspace.
