ITD 2016: Connecting worlds, from your food to your feet

WinterJewelFruitSaladWhat do translators and interpreters do all day? They connect worlds, so people can understand and learn from each other, to benefit everyone. That’s the theme for International Translation Day 2016, which is this Friday. It’s easy to get involved and help the communities that need translators and interpreters the most. Translators without Borders does things like translating the app to help refugees in track their appointments with the Greek Asylum Service. And TWB needs you!

Since food is one of the best ways of bringing people together, why not cook to celebrate ITD 2016? TWB has an online cookbook of food from around the world to support their work. 

Anyone can contribute their own recipes, which must be original, not subject to copyright or taken from websites or cookbooks. Mine is the winter jewel fruit salad. Enjoy it, and while you’re choosing a full menu, stop and make a donation.

To work off all those calories, why not join the TWB Charity Miles team, collecting the miles you move and supporting our application to become a featured charity. Just download the app and once you’re in, find us in the #translatorswithoutborders team.
