Wolfestone is thrilled to announce its extended support of the Translators without Borders organisation by renewing its Bronze-level sponsorship.Translators without Borders (TWB) is a non-profit organisation which aims to bridge language gaps that occur during critical humanitarian efforts worldwide. Established in 1993, TWB translates more than five million words per year, providing vital, often life-saving, information to people in their own language by connecting non-profit organisations with a community of professional translators.
Renewing its membership for a fifth year running, Wolfestone recognises the incredible work carried out by TWB and offers its continued support to ensure the longevity and success of this worthwhile cause.Commenting on Wolfestone’s decision to renew its sponsorship, Roy Allkin, co-director, said: “At Wolfestone, we wholeheartedly share the passion and commitment shown by Translators without Borders to helping communities thrive through language. Access to such important information is invaluable, and that’s why we’re pleased to continue our support of the Translators without Borders organisation through the renewal of our Bronze-level sponsorship.”
The journey so far
To date, TWB has worked with more than 3,700 translators, and has translated 40,432,894 words in over 150 languages in the areas of crisis relief, health and education. The organisation has responded to urgent crisis around the world, providing access to information for those affected by traumatic events such as the European refugee crisis, the Ebola crisis and the Nepal earthquake.
Aimee Ansari, Executive Director of Translators without Borders, adds: “We are incredibly grateful to Wolfestone for its assistance, which is critical to enable us, in turn, to support more humanitarian work around the globe.”
By maintaining a global network of professional translators, TWB help non-profit organisations to overcome the language barriers faced by crisis response aid workers, increasing the information and services they can provide and nurturing the understanding, respect and dignity needed during calamitous events.
