Friday, February 8th: Fluent City presents the Art of Translation

Fluent City presents the Art of Translation
WORD (126 Franklin St., Brooklyn)

Translating literature requires more than the ability to translate between two languages. While maintaining a poet or author’s basic literal meanings, translators must make sacrifices and decisions to make a faithful translation that also takes into account humor, brevity, and tone in the new target language. Join Fluent City and WORD Bookstore for a lively panel on the art of translating literature and learn what it truly takes to make a book or poem universal in several different languages.
