Translation Slam

Translation live on stage

Inspired ideas and a talent for improvisation are the driving forces of translation. Watch translation challenges get solved on the spot: What does the same sentence sound like when uttered by a contemporary youth, an 18th-century author and a child? Are famous sentences from world literature open to new linguistic interpretations? An extremely entertaining translation workshop.
