Combining Technology & Community

The Tarjimly mobile app allows the world’s 3 billion multilingual speakers to remotely volunteer their language skills as translators and interpreters for the 65 million displaced people. Today, it is the most accessible translator service in the world.

When a refugee, asylum seeker, or humanitarian worker requests a translator for a particular language, Tarjimly’s machine learning matching algorithm selects the best translator available from our community of 24,000+ people. This person is then connected in a live chat with the person in need, where they can send text, photos, or start a phone call.

Micro Volunteers at a Macro Scale

Our 46,000+ Tarjimly volunteers have helped over 24,000 refugees and aid workers in critical events during emergency medical services, asylum interviews, trauma counseling, rescue operations and other crisis situations.

Volunteers live in over 100 different countries, speak over 80 different languages, and engage in over 4,000 translations per month. They have translated for staff at IOM, IRC, UNHCR, Catholic Charities, World Relief and many more


Tarjimly is a relief

The app has made communication with families easier and more efficient, allowing them to discuss medical appointments, practical needs, and other concerns. Before the app, communication was limited and sometimes difficult due to language barriers. The app has made communication easier and less stressful for all parties involved.

Tarjimly is attentive

Our organization has partnered with Tarjimly for nearly two years and we love them! We were able to accomplish something important for our clients, thanks to the attentive and caring assistance of the Tarjimly staff. We cannot recommend them enough!

Tarjimly is wonderful

Thank you for your wonderful app! We have benefitted enormously from your brilliant interpreters, enabling us to connect with asylum seekers whose languages we do not yet speak.

Tarjimly makes communication easy

Tarjimly helped me communicate with Spanish speakers in need of assistance. The volunteers were always available and provided professional and kind service. I will continue to use Tarjimly in the future.

Tarjimly is valuable

Tarjimly has been a valuable tool for local volunteers working with Afghan refugees, especially Afghan women who often cannot read their own language. The app allows for communication through a translator, which has been a rewarding experience for volunteers and refugees alike.
