So please complete the FORM with your associations’ annual events and pass on the link to organisations and bodies in your country or region that organise events connected with literary translation.

On the occasion of the annual meeting of FIT Council, to be held in Barcelona in April 2021, the FIT Literary Translation and Copyright Task Force, the Association of Professional Translators and Interpreters of Catalonia (APTIC), UNESCO Cities of Literature Network (Barcelona Office) and the Ramon Llull Institute are working together to develop a new tool called the Atlas of Translation and Literature.

This project consists of an interactive map of the world with geolocation of events connected with translation and literature and relevant to those working in the industry. The aim of the map is not to describe the events in detail or to provide exhaustive information about them, but to locate them geographically in order to offer an overview for professionals looking for information. With the information about the official website or social networks for the event, a professional interested in a specific point will be able to go beyond the basic facts if they wish.

We very much hope you will be interested and encourage you to apply to become part of this exciting new tool! The Atlas belongs to all of us involved in literary translation! So please complete the FORM with your associations’ annual events and pass on the link FORM to organisations and bodies in your country or region that organise events connected with literary translation: translation awards, book fairs, regular conferences, residencies for writers and translators, training programmes aimed at the industry and so on.

If you have any queries, please write to secretaria@aptic.cat.
