All members of the project group are students, at master’s and undergraduate level. My colleagues and I need to translate contents from different blogs and journals into Spanish to post them on ExperimenTRADO, a website for academic purposes: This website is run by some professors at the University of Salamanca and it concerns topics such as library science, library studies, information science and technology. We have found many interesting articles on your website that would be ideal translation material since they perfectly suit our blog’s points of interest. Let me remind you that our blog is not profit oriented. The initiative has a twofold purpose: to spread library-related articles and to give students the opportunity to translate in a professional work environment. I am, therefore, requesting permission to translate some of the contents of the website you run to include them in the blog ExperimenTRADO. After being translated, we would include the link to the original website and the name of the author. Let me know if you might agree with the terms as described above. I would be very grateful for your permission. If you require any additional information, do not hesitate to contact me. Sincerely, José Antonio Carrillo
