Translators seminar in Istanbul

In collaboration with the Norwegian embassy in Ankara, NORLA will present for the first time a seminar in Istanbul for translators from Norwegian to Turkish!

Thorvald Steen will take part as an author and connoisseur of Norwegian literature, while he will also share his knowledge of Istanbul and Turkey. Hilde Hagerup will come and speak about Norwegian children’s literature and Yngve Slettholm from Kopinor will also participate in a segment about rights issues. Turkish publishers and Norwegian agents are also invited to attend parts of the program.

The Turkish book industry is active and dynamic and has shown a great interest in Norwegian literature in recent years. The seminar will give translators, agents and publishers the opportunity to become better acquainted.

The seminar will take place in the beautiful, historical premises of the Swedish Institute at Istiklal Cadessi in the city centre of Istanbul.
