The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) is thrilled to announce that - thanks to the hard work and efforts of our multi-lingual digital preservation community – the transcripts for the iPres 2022 keynotes are now available in Arabic, French, German, Japanese and Spanish. The translations are part of the DPC's efforts to provide better access to support for digital preservation practitioners worldwide.

The iPres 2022 conference in Glasgow, hosted by the DPC, offered a packed program around digital preservation, headed by keynote speeches from Amina Shah, National Librarian and Chief Executive of the National Library of Scotland, Tamar Evangelestia-Dougherty, director of the Smithsonian Libraries and Archives, and Steven Gonzalez Monserrate, PhD candidate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Thanks to the hybrid nature of the conference, the presentations were recorded and made available via the DPC’s YouTube channel. 

As from today, the digital preservation community around the globe can follow the recordings with a transcript in one of five core languages of the DPC’s translation policy.

"The creation of multi-lingual material is a vital way of supporting the digital preservation community across the world, and a key part of our internationalization strategy," says Sarah Middleton, Head of Advocacy and Community Engagement at the DPC. "We are grateful to the volunteer translators and digital preservation networks around the world who helped us to make these translations available.”
