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.

This event is organized in collaboration with the Department of Comparative Literature



Join us at the kickoff event featuring Loredana Polezzi, Professor of Translation Studies in the School of Modern Languages, Cardiff University
