Zielsetzungen und Lernziele: German Translation of the Metaliteracy Goals and Learning Objectives

We are delighted to be able to offer the Metaliteracy goals and learning objectives in a German translation! Theresia Woltermann, who works for the Goethe-Institut, a German cultural association that promotes German language study abroad and encourages international cultural exchange, accomplished the translation in record time during the summer of 2021. Theresia has also been the 2021 research associate extraordinaire for the Intercultural Perspectives on Information Literacy project. Many thanks, Theresia!

This is the seventh translation of the Metaliteracy goals and learning objectives. We appreciate the previous translations in French, Afrikaans, Italian, Setswana, Spanish, and Portuguese. This work demonstrates the international interest in Metaliteracy and the transferability of these ideas to different educational settings.

Are you interested in translating the Metaliteracy goals and objectives in a language that has not been completed yet? Feel free to reach out to us!

Portuguese Translation of Goals and Learning Objectives Available, More May Be Forthcoming

Hot on the heels of the Spanish translation so kindly provided by Dora Sales, Senior Lecturer in Information Literacy for Translators at Jaume I University in Spain, we now have available a Portuguese translation of the numbered goals and learning objectives, thanks to Maria Pinheiro, doctoral student at the Faculty of Information Science at the University of Brasília, Brazil. We very much appreciate this, Maria!

Florent Michelot, who translated the goals and learning objectives into French last year, has graciously shared with us some of his investigations into translation services. Based on his assistance, we are looking into this way of making the goals and learning objectives, and possibly other content, available to more people. Florent is a doctoral candidate at the University of Montreal.

Spanish Translation of Metaliteracy Goals and Learning Objectives Now Available

We would like to thank Dora Sales, Senior Lecturer in Information Literacy for Translators at Jaume I University in Spain for our newest translation of the Metaliteracy Goals and Learning Objectives. We have seen that much literature citing metaliteracy is produced in Spanish, and expect that having a Spanish translation will assist the work of Spanish-speaking researchers. Thank you very much, Dora.

Currently, we have translations of the goals and objectives into Afrikaans, French, Italian, Setswana, and Spanish. if you are able to assist in translating them into another language, we would love to hear from you. Please contact Trudi (tjacobson@albany.edu) and Tom (Tom.Mackey@esc.edu).
