Hi, all

I'm happy to announce the opening of the submissions phase of a new translation contest “Alien first impressions”. Three source texts in Spanish, French and English are available for you to translate. Remember that you can participate by translating any or even all these three interesting texts!


  • Spanish source text: taken from the article "Alien ¿so vo?" written by Juan Cruz González Allonca and published on El Gato y La Caja
  • French source text: taken from the article "Un homme crée un parfum à l'odeur de lune" published on franceinfo
  • English source text: taken from the article "How to talk to aliens" published on The Economist

Best of luck to everyone, and happy translating!

Discussion about Inspired by poetry: "Ploughing mountainsides" in English to Finnish - Entry #30365Some great lines

"vaot notkossa vieretysten" and "joka auran tylsäksi lyö" were beautifully expressed. I felt a bit of professional envy over those. :)

I love the contest and I think it's an all-too-rare opportunity to get some feedback from our peers. May it continue long into the future and frequently!

I always thought of the contests to be a good chance to learn from our mistakes.
