Translating for Humanity

Millions of refugees & people in need of humanitarian assistance struggle with language barriers.

Help give them on-demand language access.


— How It Works

Combining Technology & Community

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 translator available from our community of 24,000+ people. This person is then connected in a live chat with the person in need, where they can send text, photos, or start a phone.

How It Works

Our Core Values

All human beings deserve the dignity of language access

Humanitarian services should never be denied due to language barriers

Technology needs to work with communities to build trust


— Global Impact

Micro Volunteers at a Macro Scale

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 month. They have translated for staff at the UNHCR, Syrian American Medical Society, the International Rescue Community, and many more.
