“Supporting common causes whilst showcasing professional ability.”
Welcome to The Great Translation Chain©
The main principle of this non-profit humanitarian project is to support causes through translation. Together with our team of collaborators we are able to give greater global visibility to these causes without the constraints imposed by language barriers.
Samantha and Bénédicte have worked tirelessly to make this project work; also giving up their own time to not only develop the idea but also implement it. They also dedicate a lot of time to promoting the collaborators who give up translation time in order to support The Great Translation Chain©. In addition to the project both have worked together for the last 5 years developing a language solutions association offering quality translations & language training to global businesses.
All collaborators give up their time to support this mission in whatever way they can; right from retweeting a cry for assistance to donating a short text of around 200 words. Their help has been, and is paramount to the success of The Great Translation Chain©. All that you see on the Chain has been a donation of time from the logo to the site itself.
The causes that we support are either carefully chosen by the founders, suggested by the collaborators or directly requested for by non-profit organisations. This is a part of The Great Translation Chain© project that takes up a lot of time and careful thought. We are currently communicating with many of the causes out there & offering our assistance.
If you are a translator who is reading this and wishes to take part, the process is quite simple. You do not need our permission, nor do you need to provide a test. All we ask is that you are a professional translator & have genuine skill in your chosen language pair; remembering that for the Chain© to work all translated texts most be understandable to the next translator using your translation as source. Choose the translation or translations that you wish to support which can be found in the Translation Chains menu in the side-bar & submit your translation using the instructions given at the end of each text.
Together we can make a difference!
