Event description
A networking opportunity for publishing professionals in the UK and a discussion on the relationship between editors and translators.

About this Event

Join us in Edinburgh on 25 June for a lively discussion about the editing of literature in translation. We're very excited to be bringing together a select group of industry professionals to discuss a topic our members have been clamouring to hear more about!

Speakers for the evening include:

Kari Dickson: Norwegian to English translator and lecturer

Daniel Hahn: Portuguese, Spanish, French to English translator, lecturer and industry extraordinaire

Carolina Orloff: Founding Editor of Charco Press, Spanish to English translator

James Robertson: Scottish author, editor and translator

  • Where do you draw the line between translating and editing during the translation process?
  • How do you establish a positive relationship betweene editor and translator?
  • Who has the final say – editor, translator or author?

These are just some of the questions we've asked our panelists to consider - have you got any you're dying to ask?

Translators, publishers, industry professionals, students or anyone with an interest in translated literature in the UK – you're all invited!

And do stick around afterwards to continue the discussion over a drink!
