Recent book translation CPD
While my current specialisms are food, nutrition and education and training, I would also love to translate children’s books. This is my latest CPD on book translation.
- “Translating children’s literature” (ITI Scottish Network), fascinating talks by Gemma Alonso, the translator of a new version of Alice in Wonderland into Spanish, and Guy Puzey, the translator of Norwegian author Maria Parr. Many interesting issues were addressed, from the translation of nonsense and plays on words (Alonso) to the translation of swear words and cultural references, including vaccinations (Puzey).
- “Writing and Translating: a happy symbiosis” (ITI), a fascinating interview about the collaboration between writer Aletta Stevens and her translator Meritha Paul Van Voorden and about how Aletta, also a translator, got into writing.
- “Get into book publishing” (New Writing North) where I learnt about publishing trends in the UK, some differences between publishing divisions, book proposals, a book’s life cycle from idea conception to publishing and marketing, and the roles of each person involved in the process, from editorial and production assistants to book commissioners and sales managers.
