A non-profit organization started by two MIIS graduates, Meng (Barbara) Zhang and Helen Bartlett, took a class project for Professor Adam Wooten’s Social Localization and Translation Crowdsourcing Class and turned it into Translators for Elders (TFE), a new crowdsourcing initiative to help older adults bridge language barriers.
TFE coordinates translation from English into Chinese and Spanish using crowdin.com. through communal volunteer support. Previously, through Practicum they localized their website and built the company up in order to be able to start intaking projects. They now take interns and volunteers for localization and translation roles, so get involved and check out their website. and LinkedIn page!
Meng (Barbara) Zhang studied Translation and Interpretation, and Helen Bartlett studied Translation and Localization Management.
Our website and logo expert is Allie Corcoran, a former Translation and Localization Management student at MIIS who designed the logo and transformed our website, as well as assisting in setting up our site’s localization.
Alex Halatsis was a MIIS Translation student that set up Google Drive Integration with our project in crowdin.com, and served as a consultant to improve our organization’s workflow.
