Translators Without Borders: Language as a Means of Survival in Humanitarian Crisis
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | This event is a presentation by Eric Deluca, the Monitoring, Learning, Evaluation Manager of Translators Without Borders.
In times of crisis, the right word at the right time can be a matter of life and death. Translators Without Borders is a Nonprofit that works all over the world to provide translations into local languages of medical, legal, and practical information so that communities can deal, in their own terms, with disasters such as epidemics, famine, displacement, and war. Much of the work is done by volunteers who are native speakers of languages and dialects that are particular to small or isolated geographical areas with their own complex social codes.
Come learn about TWB's history, practice and ongoing projects. Opportunities abound for participation in this essential work. Eric Deluca is the Monitoring, Learning, Evaluation Manager of Translators Without Borders. For the past ten years, he has worked in humanitarian crisis relief.
The event is presented by Bennington Translates with Major Support from the Lexicons of Migration Mellon Consortium.
