Description

In celebration of the European Day of Languages, join us for an exploration of how comic fantasy author, Terry Pratchett's famous Discworld novels are translated.

This event is organised by EUNIC (European Union National Institutes for Culture) and Trinity Centre for Literary and Cultural Translation, and generously supported by:

  • ESSE (European Society for the Study of English)
  • The Alliance Française
  • Embassy of the Republic of Poland
  • Embassy of France
  • Instituto Cervantes

It will focus on the plays on words that run throughout Pratchett's Discworld series. We will be joined by many of Pratchett's translators, to discuss the challenges and solutions of translating Pratchett into their own languages:

  • French - Patrick Couton
  • Hungarian - Anikó Sohár
  • Polish - Piotr W. Cholewa
  • Spanish - María Ferrer

In this event, which will take place in Trinity College Dublin’s iconic examinations hall, our discussion will focus on translating the comedy and plays on words found in Pyramids.

Admittance is free, but booking a seat is a must.
