What Is a TRANSLATE-A-BOWL?

TRANSLATE-A-BOWL is a short, intense, community-driven event when volunteers interested in translation come together to translate! We have collected videos, websites, and print from museums, non-profits, and university organizations... or bring your own project! You can work in teams or on your own.

Why participate?

Because. . . 

  • you love to translate
  • you want practical experience in translation
  • you want to volunteer your linguistic talents to community service
  • you want to network with other up-and-coming, and established translators
Or you want the opportunity to have your translation used by the organizations involved! 
Sponsored projects include the University of Michigan Museum of Modern Art, the 
Open Michigan Youtube channel - accessed world-wide, a non-profit activist art collective 
website, and others. 

...and there will be prizes!
