The Scholarly Kitchen and the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) Add German Translations for Select Posts

October 19, 2022 The Scholarly Kitchen and the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) are proud to announce a collaboration with Academic Language Experts to create a collection of German translations for popular Scholarly Kitchen posts. 

Academic Language Experts is an academic translation and editing company helping senior scholars around the world publish their research with respected academic journals and publishers and is managed by Avi Staiman, Founder & CEO. 

In 2021, TSK reached over 3,500 readers who used a browser that translated their posts into German. This partnership comes on the heels of TSK’s recent announcements of a collection of Spanish translations, collections of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean translations, and a larger goal to expand TSK’s audience beyond the English-speaking world.

Scholarly Kitchen Head Chef, David Crotty said, “The truly global nature of scholarly communication makes these translations important for reaching across borders and eliminating information asymmetries. The more that we can all be working with the same knowledge set, the more equitable things will be.”

“It is an honor to partner with SSP and The Scholarly Kitchen, the leading source of ideas in the world of academic publishing,” said Avi Staiman, CEO of Academic Language Experts. “We look forward to combining our language expertise with their high-level content to promote multilingual accessibility to cutting-edge academic publishing news and thought leadership.”

For the past several years, SSP has hosted a micro-conference featuring The Scholarly Kitchen chefs at the Frankfurter Buchmesse titled Food for Thought in Hall 4.2. “We hope to return to the Buchmesse in 2023, as it is a great opportunity to discuss the latest in scholarly communications with an international audience,” said Melanie Dolechek, SSP Executive Director. “We hope that this new German-language collection will expand our international reach and strengthen our readership in Europe. We also invite original German-language guest posts to be a part of this new collection.”
