Access to information is a fundamental and universal right. It can make the difference between prosperity and poverty, freedom and captivity, life and death. Today, access to information is severely restricted for millions of people who live in developing regions of the world, speak so-called minority languages, or do not have the economic means to pay for information they require.
The Rosetta Foundation is a non-profit organisation registered in Ireland working to provide equal access to information and knowledge across the languages of the world. It maintains the Translation Commons (Trommons
) matching non-profit translation projects and organisations with the skills and interests of volunteer translator across the world.
