The Cunda International Workshop for Translators of Turkish Literature (CIWTTL) / Türk Edebiyatı Çevirmenleri Cunda Uluslararası Atölyesi (TEÇCA) was founded in 2006 by Saliha Paker, Professor of Translation Studies, to promote the translation of Turkish literature into English and other European languages.

The invitation-only workshop has been run by Boğaziçi University in collaboration with the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism from the beginning. From 2009-2012, the EU Culture Programme’s Literature Across Frontiers also supported the workshop.
