Translating for humanitarian purposes – joining Translators without Borders
eCPD and Translators without Borders have come together to offer you a FREE video.
A world where knowledge knows no language barriers
Translators without Borders strive to provide people access to vital knowledge in their language by:

- Providing translation and simplification services that are culturally appropriate, accessible and open-source
- Building language translation capacity at the local level
- Raising awareness globally of language barriers
During the video Translators without Borders’ Director of External Affairs, Amy Rose McGovern, talks about the important work that the organisation is doing to provide access to vital information in a language that people affected by crisis can understand. Amy Rose will explain how you can get involved in this important work by joining a global community of 3,400 volunteer translators.
