NPR‘s All Things Considered broadcast a story on literary translation this afternoon. It’s fairly basic to anyone who’s even dabbled in translation, but it’s been great to see the field getting more attention in the past few months. The version translated from a radio broadcast into an online article even includes a little fragment of Hugo to present the idea of comparative translation. Maybe this means that awareness of translation is really taking hold, as an important facet of how we learn about the world.
