Translators without Borders is an independent non-profit association established in 1993, dedicated to helping NGOs extend their humanitarian work by providing free, professional translations. The funds saved through the use of volunteer translations can then be used by the NGOs in the field, enabling them to extend the scope and reach of their humanitarian work.
With a pool of 900 carefully screened volunteers working from a dedicated translation center powered by ProZ.com, Translators without Borders has delivered so far in 2011 almost 2.5 million donated words in 57 language pairs for more than 50 humanitarian organizations.
Translators without Borders is contributing to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the largest wish-granting organization in the world that can be found in over 36 countries on five continents. With the help of generous donors and over 30,000 volunteers, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has granted more than 250,000 wishes worldwide since inception.
