Translators Without Borders (NGO)
Translators Without Borders (TWB) provides people with access to vital knowledge in their language by :
- Providing translations for non-profit organizations in the areas of crisis relief, health and education
- Building capacity by training new translators in under-resourced languages
- Raising awareness of why language matters in humanitarian work
(The above information was provided by the TWB website, 18th November, 2016)
There is potentially a great amount of overlap in the goals of the Research Cooperative and TWB.
There is a large amount of research-based information that is potentially useful to communities facing difficulties in health, food supply, water supply, and so on. One way for academic translators to gain experience (and establish a professional reputation) is to help organisations like TWB.
