We are looking forward to the Norwegian Festival of Literature, Sigrid Undset-dagene in Lillehammer, where for the first time NORLA will hold a translators seminar dedicated to a single book currently being translated into many languages.
Eight translators, all of whom are working on Morten Strøksnes’ Havboka (“Shark Drunk”), will meet to discuss the book and the challenges they have experienced with the text. They will also have the chance to meet the author.
We are looking forward to a seminar that will be extremely beneficial for the translators’ ongoing work on the book!
