Invitation to translation book sprint at Nordic Innovation in Palo Alto
Time: November 5 at 9pm – 12pm
Location: Nordic Innovation House, 470 Ramona St, Palo Alto.
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 that speak languages like Hindi, Bangla, Kiswahili, Arabic or any other of the 300 languages supported by the Global Digital Library.
This is a great way for you and your friends to contribute to new reading books in your native language.
Personnel from the Global Digital Library will be available during the book sprint week to answer questions and assist the participants as they translate books.
This event in Palo Alto is part of a global translation book sprint week organised as a collaboration between the Global Book Alliance, Global Digital Library, Nordic Innovation House and Worldreader. For more information and updates, https://home.digitallibrary.io/booksprint/
