"I set out on a journey, but the geography would not stay still, and I ended up somewhere I hadn't intended going."
Talking Translation is an exciting project with Parthian Books looking to showcase the work of translation.
Parthian Books commissioned writers, editors and organisers to sit down with a translator and delve into every aspect of what they do, looking at old and new releases along the way.
Throughout 2021, those interviews and essays will be shared online – freely available for anyone to read.
All the interviews will then be collated into a collection, to be released in November 2021.
The aim is for these conversations to help spark some interest in the important work of translating good stories into new languages – as well as celebrate some of the brilliant books translated over the years.
