Literra Invites Translation Forum Russia 2019 Participants to Explore St Petersburg in a City Quest

On the eve of the 10th Translation Forum Russia we are inviting conference participants to take part in a traditional city orienteering game that will be held on August 22. Literra Translation Company has been organising such events for four years now with support of Running City project. This year we have prepared an exciting themed game that involves walking the central streets of our beautiful city. You should not be confused with the word “running”: you do not have to run and can explore the city in search of checkpoints that are located near some of the city’s important landmarks while walking. If you are unfamiliar with such events and have never heard of city orienteering you can find some clarifying details and rules here. Our quest is closer to “Lion Pro” category at Running City games: some checkpoints are given as addresses, but some are hidden in riddles that you will need to solve. The main purpose of the game is to find as many checkpoints as possible, do it faster than the other teams, and complete a simple task at each checkpoint (copy some word, count something, redraw a sign, etc.).

This time our game is dedicated to translation so most of the checkpoints will be connected with translators, authors and other people related to our field.

You can participate in teams of up to 4 people. If by the time the game begins you do not have a team, you need not worry — we will pair you up with someone at the start of the game.

We will finish in one of the bars in the city centre where you can unwind after the game, network and recharge before the first conference day.

If you intend to participate please drop a line to Denis Brusov at d.brusov@li-terra.com. Please indicate “Running City at TFR” in the subject line.

See you in St Petersburg!
