30 years of EIZIE
Karlos del Olmo


On November 30, 2017, the Association of Translators, Correctors and Interpreters of the Basque Language (Euskal Itzultzaile, Zuzentzaile eta Interpreteen Elkartea, EIZIE) celebrated its 30th anniversary. On this notable occasion, a meeting was held to analyze the development of translation from and into Basque. On December 15, a large number of translators together with friends both old and new gathered at the Egia Cultural Center in San Sebastian to pay homage to three of the people who founded the association, Lurdes Auzmendi, Xabier Mendiguren Bereziartu, and Josu Zabaleta, who reminisced about the origins and early times of EIZIE. Miren Ibarluzea and Bego Montorio also shared their memories of and experiences with the association. The director of this journal, Karlos del Olmo, hosted the event.
