Translators without Borders’ Head of Technology, Mirko Plitt, receives AppSheet’s Innovator award, an award that recognizes app creators for creating apps that change how work is done, influencing positive changes in organizations and the world.
Translators without Borders is a non-profit organization offering language and translation support for humanitarian and development agencies, and other non-profit organizations on a global scale. The organization aims to close the language gaps that hinder humanitarian and international development efforts worldwide.
“What we did specifically with AppSheet was to develop glossaries that support humanitarian field workers and interpreters,” said Plitt. “These glossaries help to bridge a communication gap in the field because many terms are technical or administrative in nature and are not commonly known to translators. Our glossary apps help our translators to communicate more effectively with the people they are trying to help in both online and offline situations. Due to the nature of our work, it’s critical that we are able to access this information when there is no internet access of any kind.”
AppSheet’s App Innovator award series shines a light on inspired people creating apps that make a difference in the workplace or the world. “Every day we learn about app creators from every sector—non-profit, education, construction, and more—that have had a significant impact on their business or organization through the development of apps that have changed how people get work done. In ways big and small, we marvel at the ingenuity of these creators and the apps they create to solve a specific problem, address an unmet need, or change an existing process for the better. This award recognizes those creators as innovators in their fields,” said Praveen Seshadri, CEO of AppSheet.
“Thank you. AppSheet has allowed us to be more agile which isn’t just a way of being efficient, but also a way of being successful as a whole. Thank you again for this app innovator award,” said Plitt.
AppSheet is an intelligent no code platform used by both technical and non-technical users alike for the creation and distribution of apps. It is the platform of choice for over 200,000 app creators across the globe, in small- and medium-sized organizations as well as Fortune 500 companies.
