Traducteurs sans Frontières (TSF) was founded in 1993 by Lori Thicke and Ros Smith-Thomas to link the world’s translators to vetted NGOs that focus on health, nutrition and education.

Today TSF's American sister non-profit organization, Translators without Borders, assists in translating more than two million words per year for NGOs such as Médecins sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders), Médecins du Monde, Action Against Hunger, Oxfam US and Handicap International.

But this is not even meeting one per cent of the need. There are literally thousands more organizations that need help for critical communications. By developing an open digital platform and establishing organizational structure, Translators Without Borders hopes to increase that number to 10 million words or more every year.

Our mission is to increase access to knowledge through humanitarian translations. Join us.

One of the New York Times Magazine's Top Ideas of 2006, Kiva.org is the world's first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend to borrowers all over the world.

The Kiva Translation Program offers the opportunity to use your skills to make a direct contribution, network other Kiva translators and build your resume.

Volunteering from their own homes, Kiva volunteers translate entrepreneurs' profiles into English. The profiles are then posted for funding at Kiva.org. Kiva is seeking volunteer translators for French, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish into English. Note: Due to low volume Portuguese translators must also be able to translate Spanish.
