Tarjimly is an app that matches multi-lingual speakers with refugees, immigrants and aidworkers in need of translation or interpretation assistance. Multi-linguals can volunteer as a translator or interpreter for refugees and NGOs around the world, whilst refugees, immigrants and aid-workers can sign up in order to receive free assistance in the languages they need.

1 - Bilinguals sign up and get notified whenever a refugee needs a translator. If they're available, they'll click yes to the notification. Once connected in a live session they can exchange text messages, pictures, voice messages, and get on an internet phone call. High performing volunteers can receive a certificate or recommendation letter for their time spent volunteering on the app.

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 with the best available translator, within minutes. Once connected in a live session they can exchange text messages, pictures, voice messages, and get on an internet phone call.

Our mission is to eliminate language barriers, and ensure equity for all refugees and immigrants in accessing essential services.

Important for immigrants

Tarjimly is SO very important in our volunteer work with an immigrant family, who must feel like they have traveled to Mars! Communication with health care providers, apartment rentals, banking needs - all these things require Tarjimly. When the app has glitches, and doesn’t work, it’s terrible.

How irresponsible can you be?

I am a professional interpreter . For starters, you do not even get the name right, translators write, interpreters speak. Second, you are asking for “bilinguals” Do you have any idea of the training that interpreters have? Do you know how difficult is to interpret ? Because you drive a car, you can fix it too??? Do you know how much damage a well meant and inexperienced bilingual can cause in a an asylum case? In the medical field have you heard about the 70 million dollar lawsuit for the word “intoxicado”? This application and this initiative are irresponsible, you are playing with people’s lives. And what certification are you offering, who is backing this certification ?

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your concern and feedback. I wanted to reply even though it's been a very long time since you left your review. Most commonly the topics translated on Tarjimly are related to day to day communications, such as registrations, informing about classes and activities, communicating basic needs. We also rely on the translators to self-disclose their level and only accept sessions which are appropriate to their experience. You raise a good point for discussion though, about how we can prevent situations happening as you described, and ensuring only suitable translators connect to more complicated and urgent situations such as medical care and asylum cases. That is something we will look into as a team.

App issues

I continue to have issues with the app which redirects me to change my email, making me unable to use the app. I have re installed it several times and I continue having the same issue. I work with a Refugee Resettlement Program and this app is a great resource. If I was only able to have this issue fixed would be great!!!
