About this app

Tarjimly is an app that lets you volunteer as a translator or interpreter for refugees and NGOs around the world. Here's how it works:

1 - Bilinguals sign up and get notified whenever a refugee needs a translator. They connect in a live session where they can send text, pictures, documents, or even get on a phone call. High performing volunteers can even become certified!

2 - Refugees and Aid Workers sign up and request a translator based on their needs (like asylum interviews, emergency medicine, navigating a new country, or any humanitarian need). Tarjimly uses machine learning to connect them the best available translator in seconds.

3 - Everyone can signup as a Community Member, so they you can donate to support refugee translations, read impact stories, and invite 10 bilingual friends to signup.

Our mission is to mobilize 1 million volunteers to improve humanitarian services forever by eliminating language barriers for refugees.

As a caseworker with refugees, this app has been invaluable. I have used it maybe a few dozen times now, for short and long conference calls (using premium subscription, which is a great deal!). Typically the interpreter was available right away or in a few minutes, but I have had a few times where I was waiting but did not get an interpreter after even 5-10 minutes. There have been a few tech issues in the past but they're always cleared up - seems like the team is actively improving the app.

This app has been a complete lifesaver. Yes - sometimes the connection is poor but it is better than nothing. I have been working with refugees all summer and this app has given them a voice and also allowed me to explain things so much faster than I could have otherwise. Interpreters can be so expensive, and sometimes you just need to communicate something simple. Having this at my fingertips for FREE has helped so many individuals.

Great concept to help people in urgent need. Room for improvement: 1) Please update the option for calling, there should be some permission given by the translator/interpreter before a call is made, I have received requests to translate text but straight away get a call. 2) Please have the option to keep conversations unless of course the requestor deems it sensitive, for example it will be simpler to refer to mistakes, improve efficiency in translation, etc.
