Translation under spotlight in Abu Dhabi conference
- Translation under spotlight in Abu Dhabi conference
The Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage (ADACH) and KITAB – the new joint venture between ADACH and Frankfurt Book Fair – will organise an international conference to emphasise the importance of translations and translation funding initiatives.
Publishers from the UK, Germany, France, Lebanon, Egypt and UAE will present their views on publishing translations – from the intellectual as well as the trade angle. They will highlight examples of their work, draw conclusions from their experiences and discuss the challenges with their Arab counterparts.
The subject of translations will also be tackled from the perspective of literary agents as well as from important translators themselves.
The conference, scheduled on the 10th March, is set to mark the start of a series of activities around the theme of translations.
