How Do Things Work in Publishing Literary Translation?

July 15, 2021 via Zoom

A monthly series of knowledge-sharing open sessions for literary translators and appreciators of translated works from all backgrounds and experience levels.

How can a person be a translator for years and still not really know what is ‘standard practice’ for so many things? Mui Poopoksakul and Julia Sanches addressed some of the things that can be so confusing about publishing your work in translation, in particular for translators from ‘smaller’ languages where there’s not already a whole system in place. They also addressed shepherding an uncertain author through the process, and what a healthy translator-author relationship might look like.
