What is Translation Commons?
Translation Commons is a nonprofit US Public Charity powered by Translators. We are a volunteer-based online community aiming to bridge all gaps in the language industry.
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.
Translation Commons is targeted to the needs of language service professionals and students, translators and interpreters in particular. However Translation Commons also responds to the needs of people using endangered and minority languages all over the globe, giving them the chance to participate in the opportunities created by technologies enabling scientific, cultural and economic pursuits.

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.
