Literary Translation: profession, art, labour of love?

Discussing the state of the translation industry today

What are the working conditions of literary translators today? Have they improved over the past decade? From visibility to contractual standards and remuneration, translators’ working conditions still vary considerably across Europe, while they are also affected by European legislation and copyright law. The speakers share their experiences and discuss the state of the translation industry today.
