Dear members,

A small team of ProZ.com members and Translators Without Borders volunteers were actively part of the emergency team assisting the Philippines population during the recent typhoon-related humanitarian crisis.

This team worked on-line identifying keywords and translating messages in order to direct the support teams to the sites where help was most needed. They were:
* Lysander Canlas
* Joy Navarro
* Lois


You can read about this cooperation with other humanitarian organizations on the TWB blog.

I feel proud and honored to be part of Translators without Borders, a magnificent team of volunteers that contribute to make the world a better place!

Regards,
Enrique Cavalitto

Kudos to the three of you!icon_smile.gif

But what a harrowing job it must have been. When I saw the request, I discussed with my husband how it must feel to do that sort of work. It must have really torn at the heartstrings reading pleas for help etc., but so good to know you were able to aid the relief effort in such a direct manner.
