Literature is an important way we communicate with the world at large. Through literature people can explore another culture, learn about its past, present and about its aspirations. Through literature people can connect with people in another culture on an emotional level. Literature helps us to understand one another.
Razom Translates was launched as a continuation of another Razom Initiative, Razom Book Club, when members of the club noticed how few of the books we were reading were translated into English. The desire to share this experience with our English speaking friends and with the larger world prompted us to create Razom Translates.
