About Tarjimly

We believe it’s a human right to be heard and understood.

Tarjimly is a 501c3 nonprofit founded in 2017 with the mission of eliminating language barriers for refugees, immigrants, and humanitarians. We achieve this at scale through the Tarjimly mobile app which connects people in need with our community of 40,000+ volunteer translators on-demand using chat, calling, and documents.

Our Impact: we’ve translated over 2.5 million words and 200k minutes for over 20,000 people in need. In the last 6 months, we’ve increased weekly sessions 7x from 100 to >700 in response to the US Border Crisis, Afghan Refugee Crisis, and Ukrainian refugee crisis, and we urgently need to improve our product infrastructure and experience to meet these global crises.

We are a small, but passionate engineering team (CTO - Aziz, Lead Engineer - Ismail, Software Engineer - Pablo) working with a stellar outbound team of 5 people giving us the pulse of refugee and humanitarian needs around the world.
