The Poetry Translation Centre was established by the poet Sarah Maguire in 2004 to translate contemporary poetry from Africa, Asia and Latin America to a high literary standard. English poetry has yet to engage with the rich poetic traditions of the many languages now spoken in the UK; for Islamic communities in particular, poetry is a particularly significant art form. The Poetry Translation Centre aims to redress that deficiency, celebrating the cultures of communities that are frequently neglected in the UK and inviting them to play a vital role in British cultural life.
