Translation workshop in Calcutta

NORLA has for some time been cooperating with Seagull School of Publishing about a masterclass/seminar on translation to/from Indian languages. The seminar was originally planned for the autumn 2015, but will now take place March 18.
Norwegian writer Pedro Carmona-Alvarez will participate and work together with the translators on an excerpt from his novel “The Weather changed, Summer came, and so on”, which has been translated from the Norwegian by Diane Oatley. The English text will be used as a basis for translations into Indian languages.

Read a very nice report from the masterclass here.
