“A meeting point for poets of all latitudes”
— Víctor Rodríguez Núñez


Posted by Arc, 8th February 2016

A brand new app is on its way! Recently we've embarked upon an exciting new project and translation game for mobile and tablet devices.

Have you ever wondered what it's like to translate the work of a famous French poet? Do you burn to get your creative teeth into the intricacies of a Lithuanian rhyming couplet? Or are you just curious about how translation actually works?

Designed for people of all ages, Translatory is really simple and easy to use. First of all, a poem is split into words or phrases (we're calling them "expressions"), and for each expression, several possible ways of translating it are given. Can't speak another language? Not to worry! Here's the good news: you don't have to know the original language, and once you've finished your translation, your can share it via social media and encourage others to jump on board.

Blossom this Spring with Translatory...
