Description

Translation is all around us, changing words into other words, creating a huge explosion of different nuances and meanings. Translation is also a particular discipline in which choices can be judged better or worse, correct or incorrect. This talk will explore the paradoxical co-existence of these two ideas of translation, looking at a wide range of examples from the ancient world to the world wide web, and from poetry to patisserie.
