DANBURY, CT, USA – 10 May 2016 — The world’s leading non-profit translation organization, Translators without Borders (TWB), is proud to announce that London-based language service provider, TRAVOD, has pledged support to help humanitarian translations reach more people around the world by becoming a bronze sponsor of Translators without Borders.
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 30 million words in over 150 languages in the areas of crisis relief, health and education. The organization has responded to urgent crisis by using its Words of Relief model, working with partners, to provide vital information in the correct 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.
“At TRAVOD we pride ourselves on crossing the divides between cultures, and building relationships between countries, people and businesses. We operate in over 100 languages and count on a team of over 10,000 language professionals to deliver our projects ahead of time and on budget. We thrive on tricky subject areas, tight deadlines and multilingual requirements. In short, we love helping out customers when they think a project is unachievable. We are delighted to contribute a share of our revenue to a scalable mission like this,” said Elena Grigoras, Chief Operating Officer at TRAVOD. “The need for education in developing countries should be a priority for the international community. The primary goal of any education system is to equip children with literacy and life skills to realize their potential as humans and citizens – and to contribute to job generation, innovation and economic growth in their own countries. We are here to sustain this mission!”
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 TRAVOD for this assistance, which is critical to enable us, in turn, to support more humanitarian work around the globe.”
TRAVOD is proud to be supporting Translators without Borders in this work.
