Translate-a-thon 2016 at U-M


Register here for the Fall 2016 Translate-a-thon on October 28th, 29th, and 30th!

The Translate-a-thon is a short, intense, community-driven event when volunteers interested in translation come together to translate!  We have collected videos, websites, and print from museums, non-profits, and university organizations… or bring your own project! You can work in teams or on your own.

The marathon will be Friday 5pm-9pm, Saturday 9am-9pm, Sunday 9am-1pm (while volunteers are encouraged to come for the entire weekend, it is not a requiment!). 

The Translate-a-thon is organized by the Language Resource Center in collaboration with the Department of Comparative Literature.


We are still accepting submissions for projects! 

Check out some of the projects we worked on in 2015.
