International Translation Day 2017
Our annual event for translators, students, publishers, booksellers, librarians, bloggers and reviewers returns this October, with an incredible programme to satisfy all your translation needs...
International Translation Day is the annual event for the literary translation community.
It is an opportunity for translators, students, publishers, booksellers, librarians, bloggers and reviewers to come together and debate significant issues within the sector, discuss challenges and celebrate success. The vibrant day-long programme includes seminars on women writers in translation, multilingualism, the state of translation in higher education, alternative routes to publication and translating for the stage. Plus a detailed look at the entire chain from author to reader: what works and what doesn’t when it comes to publishing translated literature?
