Join Comma for morning talks and panels, streamed live on the Comma Press YouTube Channel at 11.00am. Each afternoon Comma will host workshops in specifically-chosen community languages. The workshops will be delivered online via Zoom and are limited to 15 spaces. All events are entirely free, but you have to sign up.
Translation Workshops with Comma Press – Kurmanjî to English
Comma will also be hosting four 2.5-hour-long translation workshops each afternoon of the conference designed to give people a taste of the translation process. This year’s workshops will cover translating Italian, Hindi, Soranî and Kurmanjî into English.
Groups will work on collaborative translations of texts across different genres, guided by experienced translators. This is a great opportunity to take your translating to the next level, hone your creative writing skills and meet like-minded people.
All workshops translate into English, therefore all participants must have proficiency in the source language (reading proficiency not just spoken) and have a high proficiency in English. Groups will be limited to 15 people to allow for individual attention, and applicants will be asked to answer a few quick questions when booking to determine their suitability for the workshop. This information won’t be shared with anyone but the workshop facilitator.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WORKSHOPS ARE FOR UK-BASED TRANSLATORS ONLY.
