Happy International Translation Day 2021!

International Translation Day celebrates translation, translators and translated literature every 30 September. For ITD 2021, we ran a series of interviews and panel talks, in collaboration with sister UNESCO Cities of Literature Lviv and Ljubljana. We've also heard from local translators based in Nottingham, who combined work in over 10 languages, including French, German, Polish, Slovene, and Russian.

Explore the Nottingham programme of interviews, videos, and panel talks below. To see more information on the #ITD2021 nationwide programme, visit our friends at English PEN, who have published a fantastic summary on their website.
