Call for translator articles: Job 00026571

Source language(s): English
Target language(s): English

Details of the project: Hi! This is a call for articles, papers, stories, anecdotes, etc.

As translators, I know you all have stories, nagging thoughts you want to let out, or things you wish you had known, or thoughts about the future of translation.

The plan is to collect these articles so as to form a book, but I will specify right away that this is unpaid.

So why should you still be interested? Well, once we have a book, each of you can use it as your new calling card. So, next time you meet a potential client, in addition to a business card, you could say "By the way, I am also an author of this book on translation".

The sections for now (but subject to change) are "The importance of translation", "Disasters in translations" and "The future of translation" so, ideally, what you send will fit into one of these sections. If it does not, however, don't worry. Depending on what we receive we may want to add or modify the sections. In fact, it is very likely we will.

I should also mention that we cannot guarantee your article will be featured. I anticipate receiving quite a few entries, and we would like to keep the book under 200 pages if possible.

Will this cost you anything?

Of course not. If we publish your work we will even send you a copy of the book for free. Please see for more details.

Additional stuff:
While we cannot pay you for what you write, we are happy to provide pretty much anything else, such as your name, name of your company, short bio or contact information - basically whatever you'd like.

The plan is to set up a website for the book as well, which will link to all us. Possibly a Facebook page and Linkedin page as well. We can see, and we're open to suggestions.

Whatever you write should obviously be yours, and not copied or plagiarized.

The length is a flexible issue. For now I would say that the longer the better (we can always cut down stuff more easily than add stuff), but as long as what you write is interesting and worth it, there can obviously be variation.

The timeline for submissions is one month, so we can get working on them right away!

Send your submissions to Book AT (please copy your text into the body of the email. Sorry but we can't open attachments).

That's about it.
