We believe in the power of language to bring together a vibrant community of volunteers
Translation Commons is powered by translators. We stand for the rights that should be accorded to all language industry members. To this end, we encourage all language professionals to help establish standards in our industry that will ensure proper attribution of work done, fair and adequate compensation and enforcement of copyright law. Programs working to achieve these ends draw in a wide variety of professional skillsets that we find in use in all other aspects of our lives. We encourage suitably qualified legal, financial and technical professionals to use TC programs to provide frameworks that will guide our industry to fair set of working practices for all.
Not all languages are created equal, yet we are a stubbornly multilingual world. TC embraces the diversity of our world’s languages and provides the means to assist in the survival of endangered languages. We also understand that in our technologically and culturally complex world that much work is needed to enable source languages to translate well into target languages. Should you wish to advocate that a specific situation be addressed to remove barriers to communication, TC is the community that will provide the means to achieve this.
Translation Commons is one of the richest communities in terms of membership diversity. It offers unparalleled opportunities to leverage enthusiasm and expertise in so many ways. Languages are key to almost every aspect of our existence. Please help us to use that key to open the door to enrich human life.
