DANBURY, CT, USA – 15 July 2016. The world’s leading non-profit translation organization, Translators without Borders (TWB) is delighted to announce Sajan, Inc. (NASDAQ:SAJA), a leading provider of global language services and translation management system technology, has pledged support to help humanitarian translations reach more people around the world by becoming a bronze sponsor.
Translators without Borders (TWB) strives to provide people access to vital, often life-saving, information in their own language by, connecting non-profit organizations with a community of professional translators; building local language translation capacity; and raising awareness of language barriers. Since 2011, TWB has translated over 34 million words in over 150 languages in the areas of crisis relief, health and education. The organization has responded to urgent crises by using its Words of Relief model, working with partners, to provide vital information in the appropriate languages to those affected by the European refugee crisis, the Ebola crisis and the Nepal earthquake. Words of Relief ensures better communications with communities when crisis response aid workers and affected populations do not speak the same language.
Commenting on Sajan’s decision to become a TWB sponsor, CEO Shannon Zimmerman said:
“As a player in this fun and exciting industry of language translation, we believe it’s our responsibility to also contribute to making it better. Empowering great organizations, like Translators without Borders who provide access to global knowledge, is something we strongly support. In this industry, it’s easy to see the impact – often negative – that language barriers have on a population and we are in a position to make a difference. We’re a company that values partnership, collaboration and working together to achieve greatness. This philosophy extends beyond that of our company and clients, but to the industry as a whole. Imagine what could be accomplished on a global scale if we each did our part. We’re privileged to provide this sponsorship to Translators without Borders and do our part.”
“The financial support provided by sponsors is critical to sustaining and growing the organization. In the course of our work, we’ve become aware of a huge need, which is for people in poor countries to be able to access global knowledge in their own language,” explains Aimee Ansari, Executive Director of Translators without Borders.
“According to UNICEF more people die from lack of knowledge than from diseases. People in poor countries are simply unable to access global knowledge in a language they understand. Mobile technology may be bringing more people information, but we still need to bridge the ‘language last mile’. Translators without Borders is delivering this much needed help through a myriad of tools and programs so that more people will be able to access the knowledge they need in a language they understand.”
Aimee Ansari adds: “We are incredibly grateful to Sajan for this assistance, which is critical to enable us, in turn, to support more humanitarian work around the globe.”
