A good novel translation involves much more than just correctly transcribing words into the chosen foreign language. It is about grasping cultural differences, a sense of rhythm and harmony, and conveying sensory impressions and feelings. Such a translation requires a person with a deep-rooted intercultural understanding, experience in writing itself, and a passion for linguistic expression.
