TRANSLATIONS is a magazine dedicated to the dissemination of English translations of heretofore untranslated works of literature.
TRANSLATIONS is a magazine dedicated to the dissemination of English translations of heretofore untranslated works of literature, including novels, plays, poetry, and essays.
Published every four months, each issue will contain 200 pages, and 2000 copies will be printed.
Each issue will be constructed around one theme that will guide our choice of content.
TRANSLATIONS wants to expose the works and ideas of foreign-language authors, poets, and playwrights to the English-speaking community, thereby offering them increased visibility.
It is our hope that other English publishers worldwide will expand on this idea, creating a venue for other ideas and other perspectives that has not previously been extant, and breathing some fresh air into a politically and artistically congested landscape.
TRANSLATIONS is important for the English reader who is deeply committed to literature.
TRANSLATIONS proposes to shed light to international literary voices who are shaded due to language. By offering finely selected writers works and adapting them to English it gives them presence in an international scope.
This ultimately diversifies the pool of writers today to a broader literary world. We also aim in this unique project to add tremendously to fiction and storytelling.
Each issue of TRANSLATIONS will contain completed theatre plays and chapters from translated novels.
TRANSLATIONS main purpose is to bring to the attention of English readers, texts that have not been previously translated before, from writers that are unfamiliar to an audiences outside of their native lands.
This project will help to build bridges between cultures, styles and people and will continue to enrich an endless dialog in different languages.
Each issue of TRANSLATIONS will focus on one subject - The theme of the first issue of TRANSLATIONS subject will be “BEGINNINGS”; in it we intend to include the beginning of a novel, a short story about the beginning of a personal change, an essay discussing the beginning of a new era, and a composition on the prehistoric origins of the world among others.
We will also translate some works from the following writers among others:
Christoph Schlingensief (German, film and theatre director)
René Pollesch (German, author and dramatist)
Aner Shalev (Israeli, professor of mathematics, and author)
Lala (Indian, poet)
Jean Arasanayagam (Sri Lankan, author and poet)
Kunzang Choden (Bhutani, author and oral folktale writing)
