The Slovak Literary Translators Society (SSPUL) was established in March 1990. A voluntary professional organisation of art translators whose source or target language is Slovak, or any of the languages of national minorities living in Slovakia, the Society's membership currently comprises 329 artistic literature translators who translate from 43 languages.

SSPUL creates the conditions to help improve the professional level of artistic translation of literature, and addresses all issues and problems of translation.

SSPUL is dedicated to the education of translators and organises seminars and training programmes in co-operation with other organisations. It collects information relating to translation and the translation profession, and disseminates it to its members. It also establishes international contacts in order to provide scholarships and study visits for SSPUL members abroad.
