During the Third Summer School for Translation Studies in Africa in Lusaka in 2014, participants suggested the founding of an association for translation studies with an African agenda. After much deliberation, we are now at the point where we want to announce our intent to found such an association. We intend to have a founding meeting during the Fourth Summer School for Translation Studies in Nairobi between 29 August and 1 September 2016. In the meantime, the to-be-founded association will be run by a steering committee, with the official leadership being elected at the first meeting.

With this communication, we invite scholars, students and practitioners who want to associate themselves with translation studies in Africa to join this association. We conceptualise translation studies as wide as possible, including interpreting, intercultural communication, intersemiotic translation, multimodal communication, sociologies of translation and all other forms of rewriting and recreation.

Please visit our web site at where you will find application forms, the names of the steering committee, a suggested constitution and other relevant information.
