Looking back on ten years of Translators Without Borders (TWB) and the work they have done, it is easy to see a commitment to language equality, education, and crisis response. From the Haiti earthquake of 2010 that cost the lives of an estimated 200,000 people, to creating language maps for countries with a large indigenous population — TWB has sent skilled people to work on amazing projects based on data, research, and technology.

Medical help and information have never been more essential as during the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyone deserves access to basic information so they can have a voice in the decisions that affect their lives. Given that there are 4 billion people deprived of fair information access, there’s a lot of work to be done.

TWB recently announced to be expanding their brand and become CLEAR Global. CLEAR Global will include Transla­tors Without Borders, CLEAR Tech, and CLEAR Insights.

Knowing there are many who share the CLEAR Global vision to help people get vital information and be heard — whatever language they speak — there is no better way to applaud the ten years of work done than with statistics. CLEAR statistics.
