Translator Perspectives 2013
This collection of very short essays on translation by professional translators is the second annual anthology from the Japan Association of Translators (JAT). Building on the success of the first edition, of 2012, this edition boasts even more contributions representing the distilled wisdom of translators of all ages, nationalities, fields and levels of experience. Some are in English, some in Japanese, all embody opinions and observations based on experience, and all are guaranteed to be thought-provoking—and hopefully enlightening regarding any of the numerous aspects of the job of translation.
Translator Perspectives 2013 is a continuing tribute to the sense of unity and dedication to their craft of the JAT members who share their insights, and to the efforts of the JAT Anthology Committee, which collated them. Translators and all others interested in translation, wherever in the world, will find this year's edition just as worthy of getting hold of and coming back to as last year's.
