Translators without Borders (TWB), a US 501(c) 3 non-profit with a translator training center in Kenya, was founded in 1993 to provide translations to non-profit organizations. In 2010, the organization started a virtual platform to better coordinate these resources. Our vision is a world in which information knows no barriers. We do this by providing life-saving information in languages and formats that people can access. In the last five years, we have translated over 37 million words of life-saving and life-changing content in nearly 190 language pairs. Our latest activations for the European Refugees, the Ebola crisis and Nepal earthquake have won widespread praise from the international community.
The Translation Project Manager oversees the execution of translation projects, ensuring that they run smoothly, efficiently, and are completed within the expectations of both TWB management and partner organizations/clients.
