In honor of the Frankfurt Bookfair and the return of STM’s annual meeting, The Scholarly Kitchen and the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) are proud to announce a collaboration with Academic Language Experts to create a collection of German translations for popular Scholarly Kitchen posts.
In 2021, TSK reached over 3,500 readers who used a browser that translated their posts into German. This partnership comes on the heels of TSK’s recent announcements of a collection of Spanish translations, collections of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean translations, and a larger goal to expand TSK’s audience beyond the English-speaking world.
The truly global nature of scholarly communication makes these translations important for reaching across borders and eliminating information asymmetries. The more that we can all be working with the same knowledge set, the more equitable things will be.
