Call for Translators

The Aistriú project is calling on translators across Europe to get involved by translating one or more of the project texts. 

 

Aistriú has partnerd with the European Federation and Association of Centres of Irish Studies (EFACIS) to ask scholars across Europe to translate the texts into various languages. In this way, millions of readers across Europe will be able to read Irish literature in their own language for the first time. 

 

The translations will be used as a teaching and learning resource into the future. Translators will be credited on the website and anywhere else that their translations are used publicly.

 

Would you like to be part of the project? Email projectaistriu@nuigalway.ie to express your interest in the project. Tell us what texts interest you the most and what languages you would like to translate them into. 

 

To help you, we have provided English language translations of the texts on the website, as well as introductions to the texts and notes on the author and their language style.
