Translations and Recordings for the House of the Seven Gables


Foreign languages recently collaborated with the House of the Seven Gables to translate the historic house tour into French, Italian and Brazilian Portuguese and to record the tour scripts onto listening wands for international visitors. Translations and recordings were done by undergraduate language students in conjunction with three Salem State professors.

Participants in this endeavor were (see pictures of most of them here):

  • Tessa Allen (Salem State student)
  • Brice Bambara (Salem State student)
