The Itzultzaile Berriak (New Translators) project, was launched in 2016 by DSS2016EU and the Etxepare Basque Institute with the support of EIZIE with the aim of highlighting the importance of translation in the development of Basque culture, promoting our culture abroad and training new translators.

Eight translators were selected to participate in the project, and EIZIE organized several activities and meetings during their stay in the Basque Country. In the following three years, EIZIE representatives participated in other initiatives organized in the countries of three of them (Slovenia, Bulgaria and Poland).

In 2020, we resumed the project in the framework of Saison Québec-Pays Basque, in constant adaptation due to the pandemic caused by COVID-19.
