The translators Stefania Ciminelli and Frans Oosterholt swap stories and share experiences during Dialogues at the Llull

The literary translators Stefania Maria Ciminelli, who has translated various works by Jaume Cabré into Italian, and Frans Oosterholt, who has translated the writings of a number of authors, among them Monzó and Narcís Oller, into Dutch, talked this Thursday during Dialogues at the Llull about their experiences in presenting Catalan authors in their own languages. The literary critic Bernat Puigtobella, who chaired the discussion, introduced them as two translators into two languages "that are very close to us" and defended the work of translators: "They say a good book is one that you can't tell has been translated. But that is often a fallacy, as a translator is never totally invisible; they always leave a certain mark of their own on the text."
