What is Translation Village?

Translation Village is a non-profit community organisation that works in the fields of translation, language, culture, communication, technology, music and art. 

We have been organising wide-reaching public events and smaller gatherings over the past five years. 

We hosted various events with different themes, including summer and spring camps, music festivals, participatory workshops and academic conferences.

Join and support translatedisaster.org to weave a transnational solidarity that crosses borders and languages by translating and distributing websites, applications, news and videos about the earthquake disaster.

Four community events have been organised since 2017

45 translators from different parts of Turkey came together on Imvros Island at “Translation and Nature Summer Camp” and had the first meeting of the project.

In addition to workshops on translation and translators, there were various music concerts and social events.

During the event, various speakers from academia and industry made presentations on how current technological developments would affect the field of translation and translators.
