Collaboration is the action and effect of collaborating. Collaboration means working together with another or other people to perform a work or achieve a goal. The word, as such, derives from collaborating, which in turn comes from the Latin collaborāre, which means ‘working together’.
In this sense, collaboration is a process through which several people associate to carry out a job or activity, distributing tasks and roles, mutually helping each other, coordinating efforts, in order to achieve the intended objective.
An essential spirit of cooperation is a spirit of cooperation between its members and the values of solidarity and co- responsibility in the task undertaken.
Collaboration is essential in human communities to carry out group or collective projects, which require the inclusion of a series of members with specific skills (professionals, technicians) to handle various tasks.
In all areas of human activity, such as science, art, technology or business, where joint work is essential to achieve the objectives, collaboration is essential.
Similarly, in everyday life, in family life, at school, in the workplace and business, collaboration is indispensable. You learn at home, since we are children, when we are taught the importance of helping with homework without expecting anything in return.
On the other hand, collaborating also refers to the fact of contributing an amount, be it money or otherwise, for a certain purpose: “They asked me to collaborate with ten thousand pesos for the foundation.”
Collaboration synonyms, meanwhile, would be: cooperation, contribution, assistance, help.
In English, collaboration can be translated as collaboration , contribution or co-operation. For example: “The speed of technological evolution makes collaboration vital“.
The text written for a newspaper or magazine whose author, despite not belonging to the publication’s template, usually writes for that medium is also known as a collaboration.
There is also citizen collaboration, which is the name given to the anonymous or secret complaint through which a person makes known to the authorities the commission of a crime.
