International NGO Collaboration:On Disaster Risk Reduction

November 10, 2023

Disaster risk reduction (DRR) is crucial for minimizing damage and safeguarding communities against natural and man-made disasters. Progress has been made through international frameworks like the Sendai Framework, advancing early warning systems, risk assessments, and resilient infrastructure, yet challenges persist due to climate change and rapid urbanization.

Our Client

Our client is an international organization dedicated to reducing disaster risks globally. They spearhead the establishment of international DRR strategies and frameworks – emphasizing the development of early warning systems, pre-disaster planning, and sustainable development. Through their advocacy, they effectively promote resilience by addressing the systemic nature of risks, as exacerbated by climate change and other factors. Their approach and philosophy are guided by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement of 2015.

The Challenge

The global nature of our client’s work gives them a handful of subsequent linguistic challenges, brought upon by the need to engage with diverse populations, cultures, and languages. The subtleties of each respective regional language (including dialects and regional variations) add further complexity to communication efforts.

Furthermore, catering to demographically diverse audiences calls for various treatments and tailoring. This is especially important for training efforts where leaders and grassroots communities are involved. Through their work, they are connected with all levels within any given jurisdiction. As such, there are little to no margins for error within their communication efforts despite tight deadlines.

What do such clients expect from language solution providers?

Urgent and Sensitive Translations: Response that meets the urgency of their schedules. Specialized translators and interpreters should be poised to capture the exact tone, intent, and cultural nuance of every message – ensuring that nothing is lost in translation.

Simultaneous Hefty Projects: The capacity to manage multiple projects concurrently, necessitating a service capable of handling bulk requests rapidly and efficiently. This is the only means to align with the fast-paced demands of international operations.

Highly Technical Solutions: Beyond the need for linguistic precision, the translation of specialized content often demands a provider well-versed in the latest technological tools and platforms. This ensures the seamless integration of language solutions with tech-driven assets.

Why Tomedes?

Efficiency, accuracy, and cultural sensitivity – these are standard expectations from any respectable language solutions provider. But beyond that, what else does Tomedes provide as an accredited translation company?

Our team goes above and beyond to fulfill diverse needs (i.e., marketing/training materials, legal forms and surveys, and on-site interpretation, etc.). This adaptability stems from our vast network of native linguists, each with their own specific field of expertise.

Discounts and Incentives: As part of ensuring mutual growth, we offer discounts and incentives to clients who exercise the utmost trust in our translation services. This practice not only supports their growth but also fosters a partnership based on confidence and mutual benefit, reinforcing our role as a collaborator in their global outreach.
