The WEPA project progresses. Karen Smith, president of the Publication and Communication Commission, announced during the recent UNIMA Council in Cuba that the English translation of the encyclopedia has been completed. To date, approximately 90% of the Spanish translation is done, and the full translation will be completed by September 2014.
These two new language versions of the World Encyclopedia of Puppetry Arts are more than just a simple translation from the French first edition. This second edition includes corrections, updates and new articles, as well as many new photos and images.
UNIMA is now in the process of preparing the WEPA as an online publication. By 2015, WEPA will appear on the UNIMA website.
