Description

BEING A TRANSLATOR: CRAZY BUT TRUE

As the middleman between author and reader, being a translator often means being pulled in different directions at the same time. How does a translator ensure the readability of translated texts without compromising their loyalty to the original? How does one manage cultural differences? In her lecture, Helen Wang addresses these questions and offers insight into her role as a translator.

About Helen Wang:

Helen Wang translates Chinese children’s books into English. In 2017 she won the Marsh Christian Award for Children’s Literature in Translation Award, and the Chen Bochui Special Contribution Award.
