Read the Quebec Declaration

The Quebec Declaration on Literary Translation and Translators was adopted at 81st PEN International Congress in October 2015, held in Quebec City. 

PEN’s aim is to ensure that the Declaration can be read in the highest possible number of languages and we hope that other institutions and organisations will adopt its principles and help us to defend and disseminate them. The Quebec Declaration forms part of PEN International’s broad strategy to promote literary creativity and collaboration between cultures.
