IYIL 2019 Group


Translation Commons is establishing a partnership with IYIL 2019

Translation Commons' vision is to create a world without communication barriers where no language and no linguist is left behind.

When UNESCO announced the initiative to create awareness for indigenous languages, it was immediately understood that through a partnership with IYIL we could reach more cultures and people who need our help.
