Inspired by a love of sharing, Guerilla Translation facilitates access to valuable ideas in uncertain times.
Guerrilla Translation is a collaborative hub for authors and translators to network and share stimulating ideas internationally. Our aim is to model a cooperative form of global idea-sharing, by enabling a platform and method for opening dialogues.
Although GT offers the same range of services as a traditional translation agency, it is anything but. Material is chosen for translation according to its social and environmental value, not its profit potential.
