The General Map locates 678 acts of translation of Jane Eyre, into 68 languages. By an ‘act of translation’ we mean either the first publication of a translation, or its re-publication in a new place: that is to say, we foreground the translations’ distribution across geography. You can navigate and zoom in using your mouse or touch-screen, and click on each point to reveal publication details.

The map was created by Giovanni Pietro Vitali, and represents research by the following collaborators in the project: Andrés Claro, Annmarie S. Drury, Mary Frank, Paola Gaudio, Rebecca Ruth Gould, Alessandro Grilli, Jernej Habjan, Yorimitsu Hashimoto, Yunte Huang, Adriana X. Jacobs, Eugenia Kelbert, Ulrich Timme Kragh, Abhishek Jain, Ida Klitgård, Léa Köves, Madli Kütt, Ana Teresa Marques dos Santos, Sowon S. Park, Cláudia Pazos-Alonso, Eleni Philippou, Yousif M. Qasmiyeh, Sasha Mile Rudan, Céline Sabiron, Emrah Serdan, Magda Szpindler, Kasia Szymanska, Kayvan Tahmasebian, Vincent Thiery, and Hongtao Wang, with assistance from Jay Dillon, Rachel Dryden, Karolina Gurevich, Chelsea Haith, Michael Reynolds, and Marta Ortega Sáez.
