TRAC stands for "traducccions del català a altres llengües" (translations from Catalan into other languages). It is made up of the databases of the Institució de les Lletres Catalanes and the Institut Ramon Llull, which is now responsible for managing and updating the database. Additionally, the TRAC has had new tools added recently, such as the translation map or the rankings for the most translated authors and books.

The book in Catalan that has been translated to more languages is Rodoreda's La plaça del Diamant.

<![CDATA["Catalonia In Venice_To Lose Your Head (Idols)": Collateral Event of the 58th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia]]>Arts Visuals. Venice, 24/11/2019
For the 6th time, the Institut Ramon Llull presents a Collateral Event for the Biennale Arte. Pedro Azara curates the exhibition Catalonia in Venice_To Lose Your Head (Idols). The multi-authored exhibition explores the theory of art reception and documents the complex life of public statues in our time. In a world of images, where iconoclasm, iconodulia and the transformation of aesthetic and are ways for reality and power to relate to each other, the exhibition questions the fetishism of images as living entities and encourages conversations as a way to foster human happiness, awareness and freedom.
