translator's corner

Welcome to our section on translating anthroposophical works. We are actively engaged in translating Steiner's works, primarily in the area of Waldorf Education.

The articles we have assembled here concern questions about translating and the origins of words. If you are interested in tranlating anthroposophical works, we suggest that you become a member of the Anthroposophical Translators and Editors Association. For more information, please contact:

We also highly recommend Rudolf Steiner's lectures on language contained in The Genius of Language, Anthroposophic Press, 1995.
