Our Community Celebration
The 2011 Saratoga Reads capstone event was a talk at the Saratoga Springs Public Library by translator Stephen Snyder. Snyder discussed the process of translating The Housekeeper and the Professor and the challenges that editors and translators face in moving a book from one language and literary culture to another. He described how a book gets chosen for translation, how translators and publishers are selected, and the role of translation in increasingly globalized societies. The talk was illustrated with photos and artwork.
