Translators’ atelier in Sofia (3–5 June 2016)

The Bul­gari­an Trans­lat­ors’ Uni­on and the Eliza­beth Kostova Found­a­tion for Cre­at­ive Writ­ingannounce the launch of their ‘Trans­lat­ors’ Atelier’ for the sixth con­sec­ut­ive year. The pro­ject is aimed at lit­er­ary trans­lat­ors who are still at an early stage in their pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment, but who are inter­ested in trans­lat­ing lit­er­at­ure from Eng­lish to Bul­gari­an and from Bul­gari­an to Eng­lish. The Trans­lat­ors’ Atelier takes the form of a three-day intens­ive train­ing pro­gramme under the dir­ec­tion of lead­ing spe­cial­ists in lit­er­ary trans­la­tion and includes lec­tures and prac­tic­al sem­inars on the trans­la­tion of texts. Since 2015 it has included a poetry mod­ule along­side prose trans­la­tion and a trans­la­tion slam. Par­ti­cipants who suc­cess­fully fin­ish the Atelier will receive cer­ti­fic­ates from the Bul­gari­an Trans­lat­ors’ Uni­on.
