TransPerfect Donates Services to Support Hu-manity.co’s Efforts to Establish 31st Human Right

December 18, 2018

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 18, 2018--TransPerfect, the world’s largest provider of language and technology solutions for global business, announced that it has donated services in support of Hu-manity.co’s work to establish a new fundamental human right: the right to ownership of one’s personal data.

There are currently 30 human rights adopted and recognized by the United Nations that are bestowed to every human at birth. Hu-manity.co is using proprietary technology and legal innovations on blockchains to make what they propose as Human Right #31—the first decentralized human right. Earlier this year,  Hu-manity.co  launched its #My31 app on Android and iOS devices, allowing people to claim legal ownership of their inherent human data and receive a title for it.

As part of the effort to promote Human Right #31, TransPerfect has provided language and marketing services to globalize this campaign, starting with the localization of text and video content into 15 of the most commonly spoken languages worldwide.

Richie Etwaru, Hu-manity.co CEO and Founder, said, “The language someone speaks should not prevent that person from claiming their 31 st Human Right. This is the power of our partnership with TransPerfect. The partnership enables individuals across borders to learn about, understand, and claim the 31 st  Human Right—which will drive the movement globally to classify our human data as human property.”
