The London Review Bookshop is delighted to announce its 2013-14 season of translation masterclasses with leading literary translators, run in association with the British Centre for Literary Translation. We will be offering four masterclass sessions over two Saturdays (morning & afternoon) for translators working from French, Spanish and German into English.
Participants should have a good working knowledge of the language, and may be asked to prepare their own translations in advance. We are also offering six evening classes, on a Monday, which will be open to translators working out of any language into English. All the masterclasses will cover a range of topics, including non-standard language, breaking the rules and getting away with it, colloquial language, slang, voice, style, and punctuation.
MASTERCLASS CERTIFICATION Participants who attend all four sessions in one particular language, or all six non-language specific evening classes, will receive a certificate of attendance.
Supported by Arts Council England, the British Centre for Literary Translation and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
