Collectives and Community: The ALTA and Alta Episode
Listen to the audio:
People commonly picture translators, like writers, working alone with their texts. Presenting a different view, this episode explores community and the ways translators support each other and work together. Claire Breger-Belsky gets an inside look from American Literary Translators Association (ALTA) program manager and Spanish/Swedish translator Kelsi Vanada, and Julia Conrad catches up with Italian/German translator, publishing consultant, and member of multiple translation collectives Alta Price. You can find ALTA’s list of translation collectives here.
Our theme music is by Nate Repasz; other music in the episode is by Tim Kahn.
