Write Out Loud - Mad experiment on Write Out Loud – translating poems online!

Write Out Loud - Mad experiment on Write Out Loud – translating poems online! | Language news | Scoop.it

Look, here's an idea: let’s translate our poems so we can share them with the world, and the world can share theirs with us. Simple. I mean, look at our gig guide. Thousands of people reading their work out loud regularly, and get listened to. Still simple. But what if your first language is not English? Perhaps you are from one of the 100+ UK language groups referred to in the recent census report. You might have the same passion to write and share your words as anyone at an open-mic, but how?

And what about those poets who use our website from abroad and have non-English first languages? How can we read their work, or them read ours? So, how do you fancy  getting your work translated into Urdu or Uzbek, Swahili or Swedish?

Planet Veritas - Language News's insight:

This looks like a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon if you're a poetry/language enthusiast!

Hans-Rudolf Hower's comment, May 16, 2013 5:06 AM
I think this is a very interesting initiative though it supposes that one can only "write out loud" in English. Why not translate from English to other languages instead of translating from other languages to English? But ANY translation is an excellent means to mutual understanding!
