Translation Slam

Many of us enjoy reading speculative fiction in translation, but don’t appreciate the nuanced work that goes into creating it.

They will share their translations with the audience and discuss their decision-making process and the nuances that went into their choices.

*slam (noun, informal): a performance in which competitors recite their entries to an audience
