Translation Slam

Live battle of translations

To celebrate International Translation Day 2017 CCCB presents a live battle between two translators who defend two different versions in Catalan of a single text. The translation in question is that of the first pages of Nikhterinó Deltio, an untranslated detective novel by Greek author Petros Markaris.

Last May, two groups of students and language aficionados, led by the two professional translators, worked together and now they defend their translation choices in public.
