ABCs of Book Translation: Getting Into Book Translation
January 22, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
This is Part 1 of a two-session interactive webinar on the basic notions, terms and guidelines used in the field of translating texts for publishing. This introduction to concepts and their context may guide you on your own search for breaking into literary translation and give you a better grasp of the kind of projects and work that literary and book translators do. Two seasoned translators in the field, Shelley Fairweather-Vega and Mercedes Guhl, will bring up notions and definitions while they discuss topics such as finding texts to translate, dealing with clients in book translation, and logistical issues such as rights and contracts. Today’s session will address:
- Finding material to translate
- How/where to get published: from self-publishing to literary journals
- Getting hired as a book translator: Who are the clients in literary translation?
This event is open to ATA Literary Division members only.
