Nature and Context

Translators help overcome communication barriers, increasing access to critical information and services while fostering a climate of understanding, respect and dignity in times of great need. Millions of Americans don't speak English as their first language, which can cause problems when it comes to education, healthcare and more. Abroad, many populations in need of assistance can't effectively communicate what their need is, or where it is needed.

Ideas Description

Translators without Borders is a non-profit organisation helping NGOs to extend their humanitarian work by providing professional translation.
