In Other Words: Translating Difference
Literary translation is commonplace between the world’s major languages – this is particularly true when it concerns translations of literature from English into other world languages. However, new and interesting factors come into play when literature is being translated between larger and smaller languages. A panel of practising literary translators – working with languages as large and small as French, Arabic, Hungarian and Irish – will discuss the issues they face and the challenges – and rewards – of their work.
Organised by the French Embassy in Ireland, the German Embassy Dublin, the Goethe-Institut Irland and Literature Ireland within the framework of the French- German cultural funds.
