Our mission is to share knowledge, offer free tools, organize language resources and facilitate community initiatives.



What is Translation Commons?

Translation Commons is a nonprofit US Public Charity powered by Translators. We are a volunteer-based online community aiming to empower language professionals and bridge all sectors.

We are a self-managed volunteer community, we share ideas, resources and work passionately together for the common good. 

We facilitate cross-functional collaboration among the diverse sectors and stakeholders within the language industry and instigate transparency, trust and free knowledge.

Our mission is to offer free access to tools and all other available resources, to facilitate community-driven projects, to empower linguists and to share educational and language assets.

How you can help

Our volunteers are the heart and soul of our community. Their passion for language and their expertise in technology are the cornerstones of all our initiatives. Their selfless commitment and clear vision of the roadmap that our industry needs to follow are a testament to the merit of a united global language community.

Do you have an idea that would benefit the community? Want to share tutorials, translation memories or other resources? Want to become a Mentor to the next generation? Want to localize the Translation Commons website in your language? Want to help out with one of our programs?

We need your help to make our community better! Click below and start contributing and sharing with all Translation Commons volunteers.

Translation Commons is a nonprofit and it belongs to the community. Everything you see has been created by volunteers like you. But there are some things we still need to buy to be able to run the site. You can support the community by making a one-off or regular donation of any amount. Your donation will help us develop the community and put even more resources for everyone to use.
