Since the LTAC office is located at Concordia University, and access to the campus will be severely restricted until January 2021 at the earliest, we are forced to operate remotely until further notice. Our team remains available by email for any information. Wishing you health and safety, the LTAC team.

“Writers create national literatures and translators create a universal literature. Without translators, we writers would be nothing, condemned as we would be to living within the confines of our own language. We are all translated and we are all translators.”

José Saramago quoted in La Nación (Buenos Aires) on May 2, 2003
