Shortlisted for last year’s Man Booker International Prize, translator Daniel Hahn was a judge of this year’s contest. In today’s event, Hahn and two of the translators shortlisted for the 2017 prize talk about their roles interpreting novels for an English-speaking audience. What are the different challenges of translating from Hebrew, Spanish, French, Norwegian and Danish, and what special tests did the shortlisted books hold? Chaired by Nick Barley.
