Translators' Thursdays

literary translation lab

Back to Sofia Literature and Translation House

Translators' Thursdays are seminars for professional translators, aiming to detect intersections and areas of interest between translators of different languages. The meetings provide a motivating environment and stimulate informal relations of mutual assistance and mentoring. Ultimately, the seminars aim to consolidate and mobilize the translation community on important issues that affect the nature of literary translation and the social-political meaning of translations.

Presentations by renowned translators, followed by informal discussions. Every seminar lasts up to 2 hours. The first part (40 minutes) covers the prepared presentation, followed by the second part (40-60 minutes) in the form of discussion, with a 10-minute break between the two parts. The events start at 18:30 o'clock.
Active literary translators with at least one published translation.
