My review of the 9th Portsmouth Translation Conference

Last month I spent a Saturday down in Portsmouth at the university’s Ninth Translation Conference, entitled ‘The Translator as Writer’.

‘Free the Word’ festival

Last weekend I attended an event at International Pen’s ‘Free the Word’ festival at the Southbank Centre. This was the first of what I hope will become an annual event, celebrating literature in translation and literature published in languages other than English. In the UK the literature market is dominated by English-language books, and only […]

Why go to The Language Show?

If anyone is deliberating over whether it’s worth going to The Language Show at Kensington Olympia this weekend, I would strongly urge them to set aside a little time over the weekend to pop in. Just take a look at the website to see the array of distinguished exhibitors, recruiters and speakers who will be appearing […]
