Help us fund translation of the Ranking Digital Rights 2017 Corporate Accountability Index into other languages!

Please help us make the 2017 Corporate Accountability Index and its findings more accessible to people all over the world.

RDR evaluates companies that are headquartered around the world, and whose products and services are used by people across the globe. Due to limited resources, however, the 2017 Index report and website are currently available only in English. Please help us change that!

We have partnered with Global Voices Translation Services to translate key components of the 2017 report and methodology into major languages—or possibly the whole thing—as funds permit.

We will start with Spanish, French, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian—in that order, as funds permit.

Key findings and recommendations, methodology and indicators, and selected company report cards with greatest relevance to specific language communities will be the priority.

If you have further questions or would like to fund the translation of specific components of the report into specific languages, please contact us at info AT
