1) Translations for Progress is an online forum linking the translation needs of NGOs and language students /professionals, who do not have the budget to pay for translation.

Initially Translations for Progress is targeting language students seeking to become members of the US “development community,” which deals with diverse issues such as the environment, human rights, and economic development, but in the long run, the website hopes to include students of many languages and nations.

Translations for Progress aspires to support the development of better communication within the international grass-roots community, improve the ability of organizations to meet their goals, help students become more actively involved in development issues, and prepare students to assume leading roles as the grass-roots movement globalizes to meet development needs.

Organizations wishing to use Translations for Progress must first register with the website. Contact -

10) At Alis, translation entails a form of "rewriting" the source text into a target language. This means that while the content and meaning of the original text are preserved, the sentence structure, idiomatic expressions, etc. are those of the target language. An effective translation will give its readers the impression that they are reading the original text and not a translation. Although effective translation will account for differences in sentence structure or idiomatic expressions, it will not alter the content.
