The Kislak Techialoyans at the Library of Congress: Digital Facsimiles with English and Spanish Translations

The digitization of the Kislak Techialoyans and the preparation of English and Spanish annotated translations on an interactive website. (24 months)

The collaborative project of scholars and humanities computing experts proposes to transcribe, translate, analyze, and publish in electronic form four valuable colonial Mexican manuscripts that have never been published or translated into English. The project will facilitate international collaboration in transcribing and translating their challenging Classical Nahuatl-language (Aztec) texts and interpreting their rich pictorial elements. Their presence on the web will provide student and lifelong learners with unprecedented access to rich cultural materials and a fuller understanding of Mesoamerica and the heritage of a growing percentage of people living and working in the United States
