The Tarjimly mobile app allows the world’s 3 billion multilingual speakers to remotely volunteer their language skills as translators and interpreters for the 65 million displaced people. Today, it is the most accessible translator service in the world.
When a refugee, asylum seeker, or humanitarian worker requests a translator for a particular language, Tarjimly’s machine learning matching algorithm selects the best volunteer available in our community of 8,000+ people. This person is then connected in a live chat with the person in need, where they can send text, documents, and start a phone or video call.
Our 9,000+ Tarjimly volunteers have helped over 17,000 refugees and aid workers in critical events during emergency medical services, asylum interviews, trauma counseling, and rescue operations.
Volunteers live in 95 different countries, speak over 80 different languages, and engage in over 3,000 translations per week. They have translated for staff at the UNHCR, Syrian American Medical Society, the International Rescue Community, and many more.
Our work is supported by multiple generous donors and partners in the technology and humanitarian sectors.
