The South African Centre for Digital Language Resources (SADiLaR) and the Antarctic Legacy Project group at the University of Stellenbosch are taking hands in an exciting project where Antarctic meets Africa in the world of translation. The project is about bringing knowledge to the youth of South Africa in their own languages and creating awareness of the Antarctic project in all the official languages of South Africa.
The goal of the project is to translate fact sheets and posters about Antarctica – perfect for the classroom and already available in English – into all the official languages of South Africa. The documents will then be uploaded to the websites of SADiLaR and the Antarctic Legacy so that anyone with internet access can download the information. The content is ideal for teachers in a classroom setting.
