Readings & Discussions

“Cool Swedish Titles from Finland,” at the Swedish Book Review.

“I assure you that every competent translator has to be a writer, because that is what we do.” -Edith Grossman

RT @TranslatedWorld: Let’s make it standard practice to give the translator’s name immediately after the author’s. #translatorsmatter

“we all know the rough path / first the impossible desire / for the prince (doll in formal attire)”

“If they make a good team, [the author and the translator] can really get into each other’s mind.”

Scottish poets, Iraqi poets, and the phrase “bridge translator”… you can see where this is going.

“I’ll invent things so not to get confused. / Count my steps / or bite my lower lip savoring the slight pain”

Translation is a derivative art… Intralingo clears up some misperceptions.

“I part the sea in two—the poem / always one step from the abyss.”
