Garden City, ID, USA, February 23, 2022 — Translators without Borders (TWB), part of CLEAR Global, is delighted to welcome Lionbridge as our first Sapphire sponsor.
Leading international translation and localization company Lionbridge is a long-time supporter of TWB and CLEAR Global’s mission to help people get vital information and be heard, whatever language they speak. Now, in celebration of their 25th anniversary, they are strengthening their partnership with the nonprofit. In a commitment to further contribute to the nonprofit’s growth and increased social impact, they’ve agreed to become the organization’s very first Sapphire sponsor.
This sponsorship highlights Lionbridge’s continued efforts to bridge languages and cultures. The values and visions of Lionbridge and CLEAR Global are aligned with a focus on building a more inclusive world. Looking forward, Lionbridge CEO, John Fennelly says that their big, audacious mission is “to make it really easy to democratize translation and localization in ways that have never been contemplated and just make it ubiquitous. When people need to communicate with each other regardless of language, regardless of culture, we want to provide the technology, the services, the people that can actually facilitate that… It really is breaking barriers and building bridges.”
With similarly big goals to celebrate their 10th anniversary and facilitate investment in growth, CLEAR Global is starting a major new initiative. “4 Billion Conversations” will bring together partner organizations behind a movement to address the digital language divide. It’s time to act, to use technology to drive development, create more equality, and give people agency over their own lives. To do this, CLEAR Global will bring together the TWB community, AI-powered language solutions, decades of international aid experience and global partners who can help be a catalyst for change.

Aimee Ansari, co-CEO of CLEAR Global says: “We hope more businesses will join us as Sapphire sponsors, to provide the resources we need to build scalable language technology and conduct research, so that we can adapt our solutions to local contexts and languages.”
