Welcome

All reading is, in a sense, a kind of translation, a search for meanings in a text written by someone else. We realise the impossibility of ever pinning down 'an original meaning' whilst enjoying our own interpretations. In this site we explore the role of the translator and the challenges of Translation and in the workshops area you can read for yourself how the translation process works.
