The festival is organised by MA Translation Studies team at the University of Exeter, and kindly supported by the Annual Fund Award.

Join us for a celebration of languages and cultures from across the world. Come along to a range of thought-provoking, exciting and interactive events at venues around Exeter city centre, celebrating the uniqueness and diversity of languages and cultures.

  • ‘The Spectacular Translation Machine’: Roll up your sleeves and help us bring a French illustrated novel alive in English, in this all-day live translation event.
  • Wordkeys: The 4D Translation Treasure Hunt : A team race to find the treasure using hidden clues: messages written in a variety of languages! Glossaries provided!
  • Angela Cavalieri Art Exhibition: Meet the artist and hear about the stories that have inspired her work.
  • Discover Translation Talks: Find out about translation and topical issues such as immigration, ethics, and even keeping dead languages alive!
