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).

Ayça Türkoğlu is a writer and literary translator based in North London. She studied German and Turkish at Oxford University before completing a Master’s in Literary Translation at the University of East Anglia. She will be using her time at Cove Park to work on a co-translation of Selim Özdoğan’s Die Tochter des Schmieds and pick her fellow translators’ brains for an upcoming blog on translation and music.
