Traffic Among Cultures: Double-Layered Translation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Typically, translating requires knowledge of both the author’s language and culture. But what happens when there is more than one culture or language involved in the translation process? Panelists will discuss their experiences and strategies for translating texts with two or more layers. Examples include stories written in Persian about Iranian characters living in Paris; stories written in Spanish set in Eastern Europe; a book about the Mao era in China written in Spanish; and translating Vietnamese poems into Japanese via an English translation.
