AN INTRODUCTION

Translators without Borders (TWB) started life in

Paris in 1993 when a doctor from Médecins sans

Frontières walked into the translation agency owned

by Lori Thicke and Ros Smith-Thomas, and asked

how much it would cost to have a text translated.

Lori looked at him, looked at the text, and replied,

Nothing. I will translate it free of charge. Please

use the money for your projects.’

Since then TWB has translated over 43 million

words with the help of 3,900 professional

translators who provide their services free of

charge. We translate between 190 language pairs

for 550 NGOs.

The graphic below shows those parts of the world

in which TWB operates through partners.
