What to expect

When you register and chose a username, this will become the first part of your Translation Commons email: username@translationcommons.org

We use the TC emails and donated g-suite for our online global collaboration. Follow the instructions to activate your TC email. You need this to fill in the volunteer form and get into our system. Once we receive your volunteer form, we will contact you and either ask you for a meeting or introduce you to your chosen group teammates.  Please familiarize yourself with the TC website and complete the Volunteer Orientation course in the Learning Center. If you have problems signing in please go to Help/General/Sign in problems.

We are so happy to welcome volunteers daily to our growing team!


If none of these roles are quite what you’re looking for, feel free to fill out the form anyway. We can work with you to find the right role in our team of volunteers.

If you are passionate about languages, spread the word by advocating for Translation Commons’ mission and join the many Volunteer Contributors.
