Thousand Languages Project

Community Outreach Projects


Thousand Languages hosts virtual, community-outreach activities to celebrate translation and the voice of our local and global communities.

Members of the public are invited to submit a brief response to a community poem, "The Landscapes of Language."  Responses collected by March 15th will be presented at the Northern Arizona Book Festival on April 1st.

The "Earth Day Translation Challenge" will highlight translations by French and international student at the L'Institut d'Études Politiques (Sciences-Po) and the Erasmus Student Network in Aix-en-Provence, France. Tune in on Earth Day, April 22nd, to view the results!

Club Challenge Translations from the ASU Community

In its first outreach event, the ASU Club Translation Challenge, Thousand Languages invited student-run organizations and individual students from all ASU campuses to translate a feature poem—"Ama" by Samyak Shertok. We received submissions from Club Italiano, Fluent Fridays, and individual student submissions. View community translations in Chinese, Spanish, French, Italian, and Vietnamese from ASU's student body and learn more about their organizations!
