CEATL and FIT sign the Barcelona Manifesto
CEATL and FIT sign the Barcelona Manifesto
6 Jun, 2023

Last 21 April, as part of a week-long celebration of Sant Jordi Day and International Book Day, the Association of Professional Translators and Interpreters of Catalonia (APTIC (https://www NULL.aptic NULL.cat/en/)) and the Association of Writers in Catalan Language (AELC (https://www NULL.escriptors NULL.cat/)) were happy to invite the International Federation of Translators (FIT (https://en NULL.fit-ift NULL.org/)) and the European Council of Literary Translators’ Associations (CEATL), which were holding their Board meetings in Barcelona, to a joint event at the Gabriel García Márquez Library in collaboration with the Institute of Culture of Barcelona and the Barcelona UNESCO City of Literature Office.

The Manifesto was signed by Shaun Whiteside, of CEATL, and Alison Lucre Rodríguez, of FIT.

The event, named “This Sant Jordi Day, Don’t Forget to Name the Translator”, was a unique opportunity for these organisations to meet for the first time in the Catalan capital city, and an occasion for FIT and CEATL to sign the Barcelona Manifesto on good contractual practices in literary translation.

The Manifesto is available in English, French, Spanish and Catalan.




Universities and other institutions that would like to adhere to the Manifesto are welcome to get in touch with us.
