Vital information, in the right language, at the right time.
The ability of Wikipedia to provide free, accurate, and accessible health care content to people in their native languages is possible in large part because of TWB.
BIG thanks to Translators without Borders! The ability of Wikipedia to provide free, accurate, and accessible health care content to people in their native languages is possible in large part because of TWB. From February 2015 to February 2016, we added roughly 712 health care articles in 54 languages using TWB volunteers. Great work is being done in collaboration with TWB.
It is absolutely critical to our work that we can engage with disabled fans and other stakeholders across Europe, in a language that they understand.

If the beneficiaries do not feel that they are being heard or that our services are culturally appropriate, we wil…
During a crisis where information and eﬀective communicating are so important, the work of Translators without Borders ensures that humanitarian organizations working within the response are able to get information in local languages to the people in need.

I don’t think any organization by itself, including us, can internally turn around all that information through all those platforms. That is why there is an important link between the work that we do – gathering and providing information – and Translators without Borders, who help us translate all that information.
It is extremely important to provide medically accurate and easy to understand Ebola information in a community’s local language. Our posters, leaflets and video materials are being used across West Africa: in shops, hotels and banks, in clinics, hospitals and mining sites. They are also present in airports and at a number of checkpoints. The use of these materials would simply not be so widespread without the work of Translators without Borders to help get this medical advice to the people …
Language is central to all of our education efforts. Health education material is useless to people who cannot understand the language in which it is written. TWB greatly extends the reach of our programs and enables us to fully serve remote areas.
