TWB is an independent registered non-profit association based in France. Thanks to the funds saved, NGOs and associations are able to extend their humanitarian work.
The not-for-profit association Translators Without Borders (TWB) was created in 1993. It was originally meant to provide free translations for Doctors Without Borders. Gradually TWB extended its help to further ONGs and associations. Today this pro bono work assists organisations such as Médecin du Monde, AIDES, FIDH, Secours Populaire, Handicap International or the International Alliance of Independent Publishers.
Translation projects are managed in the same way as the ones dealt with in a corporate environment. TWB work with professional translators, who are chosen on the basis of their specialisations and who translate only into their native language. In most cases the translators themselves work on a pro bono basis. TWB aims to provide pro bono work to enable NGOs to concentrate on their activities by relying on a network of experienced translators. The money saved can thus be put to use in the field.
Responsive translators who are always ready to help, donate their time and talent in order to contribute in their own way alongside doctors, nurses, fundraisers and others working in NGOs and humanitarian associations. Today TWB has more than one hundred translators who translate 70.000 words per month.
