Statement on Artificial Intelligence

1. No-one left behind: our legal demands

  • Literary translation exists through ART: Authorisation, Remuneration, Transparency
  • Transparency both in the upstream and downstream parts of the publishing process
  • No public funding for publishing with generative AI

2. No language left behind: our professional perspective

  • Machines are not translators but ‘translatoids’. They do not translate;  they generate textual material
  • Every genre deserves a human translation
  • Every language deserves a human translation

3. No book left behind: our humanistic beliefs

  • Literary translation is not transcription
  • Creative acts are what make us human
  • Literary translation is literary work
