medical Wolfestone, the Swansea-based translation company, is pleased to announce its support for Translators without Borders. Translators without Borders is a voluntary organisation working across the globe in disaster relief, healthcare and education. In 2011, Translators without Borders began a collaborative effort to translate the 80 most important medical articles on English Wikipedia into other languages. This project will help people across the world get vital information in their own language. The financial support provided by sponsors is critical in sustaining and growing the organization, particularly in under-resourced languages, explains Lori Thicke, co-founder of Translators without Borders. “According to UNICEF more people die from lack of knowledge than from diseases. People in poor countries are simply unable to access global knowledge in a language they understand. Translators without Borders is delivering this much needed help by developing a scalable training program so that more people will be able to access the knowledge they need in a language they understand." Commenting on Wolfestone’s decision to become a sponsor, Roy Allkin, co-founder at Wolfestone said: “We are an organization that puts people before profit. We believe in and share the vision of Translators without Borders that language can make lives better. We’re pleased to announce our affiliation with the organisation through the sponsorship” The financial support provided by sponsors is critical to sustaining and growing Translators without Borders.
