The project is devoted to constructing a crowd-sourced biographical dictionary of European translators in the long Eighteenth Century based on input from the research community.
Its objective is to further understanding of a crucial moment in the history of European culture through a study of translation and address the problem of lack of information about translators and the conditions in which they worked. Thus a database pooling the scattered existing information is a first step to undertaking this study. Each entry will provide information on and individual translator and all the biographical information available on him/her; detailed bibliographical information concerning his/her translations; details of any other writings.
