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.
