Welcome to the third year of National Translation Month! We have great things in store for you this February: two interviews with renowned translators, exciting new poetry, prose, an excerpt of an opera libretto, and even lyrics of songs by famous Russian rock bands, in one of the most eclectic and fun translation projects on the web today.
To get started, Claudia Serea interviews Roger Hickin about his craft and latest projects, featuring poems by Juan Cameron and Blanca Castellón, a Latin-American feat.
We hope you like these selections as much as we did.
And remember, in February and beyond, the world lies open. Take time to enjoy it. Read, write, and share your favorite translations.
—Claudia Serea & Loren Kleinman
