Introduction to Humanitarian Translation for the TWB Community


I am new to this platforn. I would like to take the Introduction course but I received a notifcation saying the course is unavailable to students;

Would really appreciate your help.



Hi @kwifo.mikhaela21 and welcome to our community!
I moved your message to this existing one. I read the first message of this thread and I see you are most possibly right. The course is being updated at the moment: this is why you cannot access it.
I hope this problem will be solved soon.
In the meantime have a nice day and thank you for your support!


Hi @kwifo.mikhaela21

Thank you for reaching out and welcome to TWB!

I can confirm what the kind @faretto5 has said, that the course is currently being updated :smiley:

Once the course has been updated, you鈥檒l be able to enrol!

Hi @marumbomkandawire

Firstly, welcome to the community :star_struck:

I鈥檓 not sure when the new course will be available, but we鈥檒l definitely announce it to our TWB community. So keep an eye out :eyes:


Hello, I鈥檓 a novice here, I have completed the Course: Introduction to Humanitarian Translation for Kat贸 Translators. But I don鈥檛 have the checkmarks, I took them again them but nothing has changed, my last score for the test was 75%. You guys that have more experience than me, please, What you recommend to do?


Hi @saraenriquez240,
thank you for reaching out and welcome to our community! You need to get 100% score to pass the test and get the final certificate. If you don鈥檛 get it the first time, you should try it again until you pass it.
I hope this helps.


My concern is since I saw the results, I have been trying to correct my answers to get 100%score, I have updated my answers several times but the system still marks 75%
Any suggestions are highly appreciated, please. Thanks for your reply. :pray:


Dear Sara,
I鈥檓 just tagging our kind @charlotte1 who will probably reply tomorrow.
I hope this helps.


Hi @saraenriquez240

I鈥檓 sorry to hear you鈥檙e having issues with the course :thinking:

I think the problem is that you鈥檙e not enrolled in the course! You must follow step 2 in the instructions above:

:pushpin: 2. Enrol in the course:

Once your account is activated, you will be able to enroll in the course. Just go to the course鈥檚 main page, click on the clog symbol, and then on 鈥渆nrol me in this course鈥.
Please note that if you do not enrol, the platform will not let you take the final quiz and you won鈥檛 obtain the certificate.

Let me know if this sorts it out or if you have any other questions :smiley:

Thanks @faretto5 for pinning me :star2:


Hello @ClaudiaM! I have made an account but I cannot find the clog button to enroll鈥he only button I see is the one that says 鈥淭ake the Course鈥濃 is the Enroll button on that site too?


Hi @marcediana

Firstly, welcome to the TWB Community :star_struck:

Sorry to hear you were having difficulties accessing the cog button. I鈥檝e just manually enrolled you in the course!

I hope you find the course interesting :smiley:

Hi, @charlotte1!

Sorry, I don鈥檛 know if anyone has experienced this before: the 鈥渢ake the test鈥 button of the 鈥淚ntroduction to Humanitarian Translation鈥 just takes me to the homepage, even though I have already gone through the course and answered each partial reflection, so I cannot actually finish the course. Would you kindly advise on what to do next, please?

Many thanks in advance :slight_smile:

Hi @Sergio_TL94

Firstly, welcome to the TWB community :star_struck: :star2:

I鈥檓 sorry to hear you鈥檙e having difficulties taking the test. When it takes you back to the homepage and you scroll down, you should be able to access the test underneath the 鈥淭est Yourself鈥 heading!

Let me know if you cannot access the test via that link :smiley:

Hi again, @charlotte1

Thank you for the welcome!

I鈥檓 afraid the link doesn鈥檛 work for me. This is what appears on my screen: 鈥淩estricted Not available unless: The activity Introduction to Humanitarian Translation for the TWB Community! is marked complete鈥.

Best regards,
