Story

The Lives in Translation campaign aims to support interpreters and translators who work in conflict zones. We are supporting two charities: Red-T and Colleagues Across Borders do vital work to ensure that interpreters and translators working in combat zones and refugee camps are safe, both physically and mentally.

Colleagues Across Borders is a small, UK-based NGO, which provides professional support for refugees, who have trained as psychosocial workers, interpreters and teachers. This intervention is delivered pro bono via Skype (and other remote platforms), by combinations of senior mental health practitioners, interpreters and teachers. The collegiate support is offered to those, working in frontline refugee support organisations in North Africa, who have been affected by their traumatic experiences.

Red T is an international non-profit organisation whose main goal is to protect interpreters and translators working in conflict areas, providing support from the front line all the way to the courtroom. Their vision is a world in which translators and interpreters can work free from fear of persecution, prosecution, imprisonment, abduction, torture and assassination.

In addition to donating, you may be interested in attending our event at Birkbeck (University of London) on Wednesday 20 February 2019.
