Looking over the shoulder of the translator
In 1972, the ground-breaking author of fantasy fiction Ursula K. Le Guin wrote “The Word for World Is Forest”, a novel about the predatory interplanetary exploitation of nature by terrestrial colonisers. Le Guin died last year, and Karen Nölle is re-translating many of the late author’s books into German, including “The Word for World Is Forest”. Today, you can watch the process, ask about and participate in it: translation made transparent.
