Translations of Euler’s Works

One of the key objectives of the Euler Archive is to provide a foundation for the translation of Euler’s works. Since roughly 80% of these works were published in Latin, translation into current languages is crucial for the understanding of Euler’s contributions to science and mathematics. While English is the primary language of scholarship today, translations into any modern languages are strongly encouraged. In the end, any translation will serve to make Euler more accessible to modern scholars.

With this in mind, the Euler Archive provides here a “translation clearing-house”: a comprehensive listing of articles, books, and letters which are being actively translated. In this way, individual translators may inform the community of Euler scholars of their current area of study while also preventing others from duplicating a translation in progress.

If you are contemplating a particular translation project, please contact the Euler Archive here. (Note: Use “Translation Notice” as your subject heading.) Once we have received your notice, we will update the Active Translations list shown below. If you decide to discontinue a translation, please contact the archive so that it can be returned to “open” status.
