About this course:
This workshop is geared to writers with little or no experience translating foreign-language literature into English, but would like to try. You need not be fluent or even a comfortable speaker to get started, but need a working knowledge of a non-English language (at least the equivalent of a semester or two of a language). In this workshop, you get a sense of different approaches and theories around translation by comparing multiple translations of the same work. We discuss the contemporary translation landscape in the US and how you can contribute to it. You also gain tips and resources on the practice of translation itself. Students have the opportunity to practice translating in a supportive community of peers.
