Translation Services for Non-Profits and NGO

Money and time always seem in short supply, but the demand for your work keeps growing. Your work doesn’t increase the bottom line: your work saves lives.

Your need to reach out globally is constant and enormous. Yet, you have time constraints and a limited budget.

You are global: the languages you work in reflect that.

Your challenge—your constant challenge: bring your message to the world. 

You can’t be good at everything. You need to focus on the bigger goal and not be hampered by details that someone else can take care of. 

To convey the truth and urgency of your message, excellent translation remains key. The people with whom you work are stretched to the limit of time and energy.

We help you bring your message to the world

That’s where we step in: we are your solution. We help NGOs help others: we translate their work anywhere in the world and present it in its final format—all at a discounted price because your good cause is also ours and we want to help you help the world.

How do we do this?

  • discounted rates for registered NGOs
  • highly qualified professionals specializing in translating for NGOs / non-profit organizations
  • deliver ready-to-publish work
  • low overhead costs which means we pass savings on to you, our customer
  • truly global: our professionals live all over the world

You are not just a client to us: you give us the chance to help the world. You give us a greater purpose as a company.

Discounted rates for registered NGOs

Because our core group is small, our overhead costs are lower. By keeping overhead costs low, we keep our prices lower and pass that savings on to you, our customer. Plus, we give NGOs a special discount.

We believe deeply in the work you do: your cause is our cause. Together we can help make the world a better place. That is why we offer you discounted rates.

We use no one but the best for you: discounted rates do not mean lower quality. Our professional translators specialize in translating for NGOs maintaining the quality and high standards of the translation industry. 

Discounted rates do not mean you do not receive a finished product. Translations ABC’s top-rate DTP (desktop publishing) team can handle any language—in any direction, in any format. 

Your message in the target vernacular

Our company headquarters might be small, but our team is global—truly global. Our professionals live all over the world. The message you want to convey is delivered in the vernacular of the people to whom you are “speaking in print”. We can handle all the translations needs of your offices around the world—in over 200 language combinations.

Let’s get started! 

One phone call to us—then put your mind at rest. We have been assisting NGOs for over 35 years. You need only make one phone call to Translations ABC. Or, if you are in the Washington D.C. area, come to us for free consultation and advice: we are just across the Potomac River, only a few minutes from Ronald Reagan Airport. When you choose to work with us, we get all the required information and start the translation process. We keep you informed, so you do not stress, and you can focus on other pressing work. 

We also offer long-term agreements. This saves you time and energy from repetitious administrative work: no need to try to find the right person to sign the contracts each time you need translation work done.

Translations ABC cares. We want to contribute in making this world a better place, not just improving our bottom line. When you become part of our family of clients, you will never want to leave: we have over a 97% retention rate.

If you call for an appointment, you will always be greeted by a friendly, familiar voice.
