EST Wikicommittee

A project to generate better-quality and more consistent information in Translation Studies

The EST Wikicommittee was set up beginning of 2017. It is the result of an EST Board initiative to improve the quality of information on the web about translation and Translation Studies. Participation is open to all. For example, Wikipedia Editathons have been held in collaboration with the EST and universities in Malta, Stockholm, Tarragona and Thessaloniki to address the gap in information about women in Translation Studies (see news post).

The priorities of the Committee include:

  • Creation of new articles to fill gaps
  • Improvement of existing articles
  • Tagging articles of interest to the project
  • Provision of up-to-date information about concepts and terminology
  • Updating of bibliographical references
  • Translating of entries into more languages
  • Creation and consistent use of relevant categories
