Following on from our first Translation Week in October 2017, we continue our partnership with the National Centre for Writing to welcome 7 translators to take part in a one-week programme including discussion workshops, sharing work with fellow translators, and time and space to work on translation projects.
The participating translators 2019 include: Kari Dickson (workshop leader), Polly Barton (Japanese), Jozefina Komporaly (Hungarian and Romanian), Jozef van der Voort (Dutch and German), Zoë Perry (Portuguese), Katherine Mendelsohn (French) and Ayça Türkoğlu (Turkish and German).
Kari Dickson is a literary translator from Norwegian. Her work includes crime fiction, literary fiction, children’s books, theatre and non-fiction. She is also an occasional tutor in Norwegian language, literature and translation at the University of Edinburgh, and has worked with BCLT and the National Centre for Writing. Kari co-organised Translation Week 2017 and 2019.
