Foreign Language Translations

Dancecult's Transpositions section publishes English-language translations of already-published, foreign-language EDMC scholarship. Articles are selected by the Foreign Language Editor in consultation with the Executive Editor. Authors may nominate their own already-published work for Transpositions by contacting the FLE.

For authors wishing to translate their manuscripts into English, the Foreign Languages Editor (FLE) can provide help in finding a capable professional translator. The cost of translation remains with the author.

Once an article has been accepted for publication, the FLE is available to provide limited editing and proofreading support. Non-Anglophone authors may seek assistance from the FLE during the editing process.

   

Submission Policy

Dancecult does not feature article processing or submission charges.
