Translating an EGU Planet Press release

Young children in the various European countries don’t usually have a level of English that allows them to understand the original Planet Press texts. This means translations are the only way to ensure Planet Press reaches a wider audience. We are very grateful to everyone who promotes this project by translating texts into various European language, as this ensures they can be used in classrooms around Europe, as well as in other parts of the world.

Remember that your primary audience is 7–13 year olds but Planet Press releases can also be read and used by anyone, so try to make your translation as easy to understand as possible. We recommend you follow these four key pointers when translating:
