We are always in need of multi-linguals who can donate some of their spare time and skills to help refugees and immigrants with interpretation and translation on the Tarjimly app. There is no minimum time you need to commit, and you can volunteer flexibly according to your schedule.
After signing up on the Tarjimly mobile app, you will receive notifications on your phone when someone needs translation support for the language pairs you speak. You can simply accept or reject the request, depending on your availability at that time.
Watch this short video to see what to expect when volunteering with Tarjimly.
Download the Tarjimly app onto your phone via Google Playstore or the Appstore.
When you need a translator or interpreter, select the language pair you need. Tarjimly will search and connect you with the best available translator. This can take from 30 seconds to 15 minutes depending on the language pairing requested.
Check our Available languages page to get up-to-date information on likely match rates and connection times for the languages we offer on the app.
Tarjimly connects you and the translator in a live chat session, where you can send text, voice notes, and photos, and start an internet phone call. It’s also possible to get documents translated.
Additional features are offered for Premium subscribers. Take a look at our pricing structure page to get more information about our Premium Services.
Once you have finished, end the session and rate it. The session will stay open for a maximum of 12 hours unless there is a continued activity in the chat from both users.

It’s preferable if you already have some experience in translation or interpretation, but it’s not necessary. We recommend that you take our in-app training to learn more about best practices of interpretation and translation, safeguarding, alongside other topics. For translators without experience, we recommend you take your time to carefully review these trainings before accepting requests.
