What is the Translate-a-thon?

The Translate-a-thon is a short, intense, community-driven translation marathon, where volunteers interested in translation come together to translate materials for the benefit of our local, national and international community. We accept projects from a variety of disciplines in a variety of different formats: including print, video and digital/web-based. We welcome all languages to our event.

Organized in collaboration with the Department of Comparative Literature, and the LSA Opportunity Hub
