As with Arabic very few classical liberal texts had been translated into Farsi until recently. It is difficult to do as the concepts involved are not easy to explain and the right words may simply not there to use.
Network for a Free Society is working with Bardia Garshasbi who is translating the texts and also collaborating with CheragheAzadi.org the Atlas web based platform who have been working on Farsi translations for a few years.
When there are enough texts a CD will be created for distribution within Afghanistan and Iran and it is hoped that some of the books will also be published in hard copy in Iran.
