Loses Something in the Translation: Conveying Humor, Idioms, and Cultural Concepts Across Languages
The challenge in translating fiction from one language to another is not just in the words themselves but also the emotions, concepts, and inferences unique to the original culture. How does one convey a concept in one culture that has no ready equivalent in another? What are some of the special challenges found in particular languages? Our panelists discuss the challenges in translating SF/F fiction.
