Translation Workshop: Encounters

Translation Workshop: Encounters
Dates and times

25 Apr 2019 - 23 May 2019

Show Map

Instituto Cervantes Leeds

169 Woodhouse Lane, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS2 3AR

In all the texts selected for this new workshop, be they short stories, travel literature, biographies or poetry, two worlds will always come into contact: encounters between beings from similar or very different backgrounds, unexpected collaborations, open conversations, fruitful exchanges of ideas; also misunderstandings, at times.

How is a tone, an emotion or the uncertainty of an encounter expressed by the different authors? And will the reader of the translated text be able to approach all these sensations and feelings?

A series of short, preparatory exercises will help us observe the necessary linguistic processes that come into play in any translation, as well as the particular challenges presented by the selected texts. In each session, after having worked independently at home, the participants will be able to share their translations and comment on the most difficult aspects. All participants will also receive individual feedback on their work.
