Word to word. Polish-Russian Translation School
The Centre for Polish-Russian Dialogue and Understanding organises a translation school for beginner translators of Russian literature into Polish.
Thanks to our workshops, participants can become acquainted with the whole work path of a translator: from searching for text to translate and sources of financing their work, through analysis and editing of their own translation, to legal aspects of a translator's work and contacts with a publishing house. Newly acquired theoretical knowledge could be immediately put into practice.
The result of the course will be a translation and publication of a short stories collection by a contemporary Russian writer.
The workshop consists of 10 eight-hour meetings. Each meeting is divided into two parts: lectures by master translators, experienced translators, editors, publishers and experts from Poland and Russia, and technical work on the translated texts.
