Carnival of Blog Translation

Announcing the first Carnival of Blog Translation! Tuesday, Feb. 28th, 2006!

On the day of the Carnival, a participant translates one post by another blogger, and posts it on her own blog with a link to the original. She would need to email me, or post in the comments right here, and I'll compile one big post on the day of the Carnival with links to all the participants.

You can translate any blog entry that was posted in the month of February 2006. It can be your own blog entry, if you like.

From participants I need:

your name
name of your blog
your blog URL
post title in target language

name of blog you're translating
name of person you're translating
that URL
the post title in the source language

You should get permission from the person you're translating to post your translation of their work. I would also suggest that you might introduce your translation for the target-language audience, and provide some context if you can.

A Blog Carnival is sort of like a travelling signpost that points to a bunch of magazine articles. It is a post that contains links to other posts written especially on a particular theme. I'll host it this month, and next month will hand it off to another host. The content will not appear here; only links to that content!


If you're looking for a blog in a particular language, try searching on Technorati, a useful blog search engine.

This idea came from a discussion on Bev Traynor's blog and further discussion of bilingual blogging and tagging at BlogHer. I'm excited about the idea and its possibilities!


*** Rebecca Mckay points out that the "Translation Carnival" is a graduate student conference happening at University of Iowa in April. Here's some information on the U. of Iowa Translation Carnival; it sounds like a great event!

And if you are willing to translate this announcement into another language, please do, and post it here in the comments. Thank you!

Prentiss Riddle said...

I'm sure the Esperanto, Lojban and Klingon translations of the announcement will be headed your way shortly.

What a great idea. I've posted a French version of your announcement (freely translated) on my blog.

I mentioned it in German. Of course, as you obviously know from the word Carnival, it's not an ordinary working day in all parts of Germany.

Hans Persson said...

I just did a version in Swedish in my blog.

Interesting idea. I often wonder re Arab blogs whether there's a big difference between the Arab blogosphere in Arabic (which I cannot read) and that in English(which I follow with much interest). In general, do you think one should always get permission from the original poster to translate and post their blog, or is that just for the spirit and purposes of this particular carnival exercise?

I'm leaving link to my entry here (I would e-mail it as Liz suggested but couldn't find your e-mail):

Can we be expecting something for 2008. I was Googling around and found this. It seems very interesting. Here in San Antonio, we have a few literary circles and since we are so multicultural, language and translations are always a big part of that. Keep us updated!

Disaster is likely to wreak havoc in the life of an individual as soon as he becomes victim to erectile dysfunction and the most significant dreadful consequence of erectile dysfunction is that the afflicted man becomes incapable of facilitating erections required for sexual intercourse. The sexual vacuum resulted from erectile dysfunction prompts the sufferer to opt for anti-impotency pills, most especially the viagra medication that was approved by FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) as a clinically effective drug to cure erectile dysfunction in men. Viagra is meant to be administered by patients only after availing of viagra prescription from the doctor. The prescription for Viagra provided by the doctor spells out that the patient suffering from erectile dysfunction seriously need Viagra to treat his disorder and further authorizes the patient to avail of Viagra from the pharmacist.
