Second Annual Rutgers Translate-a-Thon: February 28 2020

The 2020 Translate-a-Thon was a great success, with projects in Arabic, French, Chinese, Russian, Korean, and Spanish. Projects included: Translating poetry and community partners’ documents from Spanish to English and English to Spanish, localizing video games, subtitling an episode of the Russian series “Оттепель” for use in the classroom, translating Wikipedia articles from French and English into Arabic (in partnership with Ideas Beyond Borders), translating K-pop lyrics, tweets, and Korean poetry into English, and translating RU Writing Program documents, Chinese to English and English to Chinese.

We are grateful to The Language Center for graciously hosting the event, to Comparative Literature for their generous sponsorship, and to the following departments, programs, and organizations for organizing these wonderful projects: AMESALL, Asian Languages & Cultures, English, French, GREELL, Ideas Beyond Borders, Spanish & Portuguese, and the Rutgers Writing Program.
