About the Message Library

Welcome to the Message Library, an online searchable database of messages that acts as a reference for those wanting to disseminate critical information to affected populations in an emergency. The Message Library, originally developed by infoasaid, has been developed in collaboration with different UN clusters working in humanitarian response. It can be used both as a disaster preparedness tool and following the outbreak of an emergency. Translators Without Borders working with its partner, Microsoft, has contributed a wide selection of translations to the Message Library.

Messages can be viewed by selecting how you’d like to search them from the buttons below, and then by further filtering down the messages.

It is possible to share any selection of messages using the social media buttons, as well as export the selection in a range of popular formats.

Note: These messages are generic and need further modification to be applicable in any particular situation. For more information on effectively using the Message Library, check out our downloadable User Guide and our FAQ.
