41 - Words Without Borders

Words Without Borders want to promote international communication through translation of the world's best writing--selected and translated by a distinguished group of writers, translators, and publishing professionals, on the web. They consider it an dangerous imbalance that 50% of all the books are translated *from English,* but only 6% are translated *into* English. Words Without Borders want to introduce exciting international writing to the public because literature should not be seen as an elite phenomenon but a portal to which to explore the world.

You can search for texts by countries (Africa, Americas, Europe, Middle East, Pacific Rim) or along cities, coasts, mountains, plains, deserts, forests and villages.

A fine page!
