“By translating this, our window to the world, we want not only to strengthen our ties with sister organizations in the countries we live in, but also represent the true diversity of Spain and its languages,” explains the joint coordinator Nerea Fernández.
The United Left Abroad (IU Exterior) federation has presented this Wednesday the 30th of September, International Translation Day, a new version of its webpage in seven languages: English, French, and German (which, together with its original version in Spain, covers the majority of the languages spoken in the mempership’s countries of residence) as well as Catalan, Galician and Basque.
“By translating this website, which is our window to the world, we want not only to strengthen our ties with sister organizations in the countries we live in," explains the joint coordinator, Nerea Fernández, "but also represent the true diversity of Spain and its languages.”
La traducción, que por el momento comprende los elementos comunes de la web, ha sido realizada por el recientemente creado Grupo de Trabajo de Traducciones de la federación, compuesto por militantes y simpatizantes residentes en países tan distantes como Alemania, Austria, Bélgica, Chile, Estados Unidos, Francia, Lituania, Reino Unido o Rusia, además de con la colaboración de compañeras de Ezker Anitza-IU. Este grupo será el encargado, a partir de ahora, de traducir las notas de prensa publicadas en un futuro a las lenguas que sean pertinentes, según el interés de la información publicada.
“In United Left Abroad we invite any member or sympathiser who might be interested in providing translation to additional languages, or help with the existing ones, to join this work group,” encouraged the joint spokesperson, Eduardo Velázquez. This can be done by contacting the email firstname.lastname@example.org.
About United Left Abroad
The United Left Abroad federation was created in April 2017 to politically mobilise Spanish migrants and make their voices heard. Currently we have assemblies established in Brussels, Belgium; Berlin and Frankfurt in Germany; Luxemburg; Zurich, Switzerland; Lyon and Toulouse in France; and Buenos Aires, Argentina. Furthermore, the federation also counts with the United Left Global assembly (IU Global), which gives the chance to participate to all those members around the globe living in areas without a local assembly.
