Center for Organizing the Translation and Publication of Islamic Teachings and Human Sciences

The importance of introducing the views of Muslims thinkers to non-Persian speaking contemporary societies that may be less informed about the treasure of Islamic teachings and Islamic human societies consisting of the scientific and cultural heritage of Iran in the pre and post-Islamic Revolution - originally produced in Persian and Arabic languages - calls for appropriate efforts for translating and publishing these Iranian- Islamic works.

The Center for Organizing the Translation and Publication of Islamic Teachings and Human Sciences was formed under the supervision of the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization with the view to translating and publishing written works on Islamic teachings and human sciences as well as preventing non-coordination and any possible overlap in the area of translation and publication of such works.

As a specialized institution and a legal entity this center is in charge of policy-making, planning, organizing and expanding the scope of translation and publication of Islamic teachings and human sciences. It is hoped that by causing cohesion in the existing capacities of different sections this Center would be able to launch a dynamic movement in the area of translating the existing treasures of Islamic teachings and human sciences.

The Most Important Responsibilities of the Center within the Framework of the Above Objectives:

Promoting the translation of the existing treasures of Islamic teachings and human sciences from Persian and Arabic to other languages.

Cohesion, policy-making, providing support, exercising coordination and supervision over the translation and publication of Islamic teachings and human sciences from Persian to other languages.

Introduction and distribution of translated books (printed or digitally published) in different parts of the world including libraries and scientific and educational centers.

Training committed and efficient translators in the area of Islamic teachings and human sciences.

Fostering cohesion, coordination and synergy in the programs and activities of different government and non-government organizations and institutions involved in the translation and publication of such works.
