The 6th edition of National Translation Month was a tremendous success! Thank you so much to all the authors, translators, and event organizers who celebrated with us.
We close National Translation Month 2018 on a high note: September 30 is celebrated worldwide as International Translation Day. We’re leaving you with four poems by Sybille Rembard translated from the French by the poet Emily Vogel. Lyrical and personal, their length belies their depth, and they often pack a punch. They are thought-provoking as they sing.
Stay tuned for translation news, collaborations, and publishing opportunities we’ll continue to post throughout the year. Join our mailing list, follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook. And, if you like what we’re doing, support our efforts with a small donation here. It will help us bring more literary translations to an even wider audience next year.
We hope you’ll continue to celebrate translations throughout the year. If you think of a way you’d like to celebrate NTM in 2019, drop us a line and we’ll be happy to include it in our next year calendar. The world lies open—take time to explore it. And celebrate the craft of translation in September and beyond.
