2022 Words Without Borders–Academy of American Poets National Translation Month Series

September 2022

To celebrate National Translation Month, we’ve once again partnered with the Academy of American Poets to bring you a series of four poems in translation published throughout the month of September. Translated from Spanish, Malay, Arabic, and French, the poems will appear in Words Without Borders and the Academy of American Poets’ “Poem-a-Day.” Each translation will be accompanied by its original-language text and audio recordings by the authors and translators.
