Renewed sponsorship of Translators without Borders

Tolkegruppen Oversættergruppen P/S is proud to announce that we have renewed our sponsorship of Translators without Borders for 2017. For the third year running, we support the organisation in its work to improve access to vital knowledge for the world’s poorest.

We are proud to continue our partnership with Translators without Borders, which works around the clock to break down language barriers and make life-changing information available to people in their own language.

says Jesper Harder Søndergaard, Managing Director of Tolkegruppen Oversættergruppen P/S.

Translators without Borders aims for a world, where knowledge knows no language barriers. The US-based non-profit provides people access to vital information in their own language by entering into partnerships with humanitarian organisations.

Translators without Borders, which started in 1993 in France as Traducteurs sans Frontières (now a sister organisation), today translates more than 5 million words per year. In 2012, TWB established a Training Center for Medical Translation in Nairobi, Kenya. To read more and explore your opportunities to support TWB financially or volunteer, please see the TWB website or visit TWB on Twitter and Facebook (all links open in a new tab).

In this time of ever-more complex flashpoints arising all around the globe, our company very much considers languages a vital tool to increase understanding and respect between peoples and between individuals. Plainly speaking: if emergency aid is not delivered in a language understood by its recipients, that aid does not meet its purpose.
