Invitation to translation book sprint in New York
Time: October 29 at 12pm.
Location: New York
Languages: Kiswahili, Arabic, Laos and Amharic.
In collaboration with the Global Book Alliance and the Global Digital Library, we are organising a workshop books sprint to increase the number of high quality reading books in underserved languages. Our focus will be to translate simple books for children. This means that YOU can translate one book into a new language by donating one hour of your time.
We are looking for volunteers! You can join the event remotely via Hangout or Skype.
This is a great way for you and your friends to contribute to new reading books in your native language.
This event in New York is part of a global translation book sprint week organised as a collaboration between the Global Book Alliance and a group of students lead by Fasika Minda.
