Book in EPUB

La obra se inserta en esta doble línea de investigación: la competencia traductora y su adquisición; y la didáctica de la traducción. El libro constituye una importante contribución a la investigación sobre la competencia traductora, ya que aborda el estudio de las distintas subcompetencias esenciales para el traductor (bilingüe, extralingüística, instrumental y estratégica) y para el traductor (competencia teórica y metateórica). Además, se proponen pautas pedagógicas para el desarrollo de estas subcompetencias, a través de las cuales también se delimita la investigación sobre la didáctica de la traducción. Los aspectos tratados en el libro son de diversa índole -traducción de acrósticos, chistes, estructura verbal en textos literarios-, así como el uso de recursos de documentación para los traductores.

Entrevista a Prof. Dr. Martin von Koppenfels sobre la traducción de poesía española al alemán

Entrevista a Prof. Dr. Martin von Koppenfels sobre la traducción de poesía española al alemán

¡Hola, querid@s radioyentes!

Esta semana nos acompaña el Prof. Dr. Martin von Koppenfels, doctor en Filología y Catedrático en la Facultad de Literatura Comparada de la Universidad de Múnich, para charlar sobre la traducción de poesía. 

En concreto, hemos tenido la suerte de poder hablar sobre su último proyecto, una antología de la poesía española con traducciones al alemán. La idea es tan loca como apasionante: la colaboración entre filólogos y traductores (y una editorial que no puede esperar ganar mucho dinero) quiere juntar en unas 2.000 páginas los frutos de la poesía española y sus traducciones, y ofrecer tanto introducciones como apartados críticos y, si fuera poco, bibliografía comentada para los más interesados. 

Martin nos ha contado sobre las dificultades principales de “la bestia”, como cariñosamente llaman a esta antología. Fue necesario reflexionar sobre lo que es “la poesía” y “el español” para poder decidir qué textos incluir y cuáles excluir. Son conceptos bastante difíciles y difusos, además de históricos y políticos. ¿Qué hacer, por ejemplo, con los orígenes multilingües del español? Es decir, la poesía gallego portuguesa o sus orígenes árabes. Y si se decide añadir diferentes idiomas, ¿añadir sólo lo que se puede clasificar como un poema o también cantos u otras formas líricas? Pero claro, cómo definir qué es un poema… Ya veis, no es nada fácil. 

Una vez elegido el contenido, surge otro reto: la traducción al alemán. Martin nos ha revelado que solo un tercio de las traducciones empleadas existían ya en esta lengua. En la gran mayoría se debe a un cambio en la estética. Cada un@ de vosotr@s que haya probado esto de la traducción poética sabrá ya que es un arte, sobre todo si hay que traducir de un sistema de métrica a otro distinto, algo que pasa en la combinación español-alemán. Pero tal y como nos explica nuestro invitado, es como un precioso rompecabezas. Se trata de jugar con las palabras y, a veces, las ideas vienen en los momentos más inesperados: en la ducha, en la bici o soñando.

¡No os perdáis esta charla tan emocionante! Se aprende mucho sobre lo que puede ser la traducción de la poesía, pero también da pistas para pensar sobre lo que puede ser un idioma.

Os animamos a seguirnos en TwitterFacebook e Instagram. ¡Hasta la semana que viene!

Un de estos problemas es el de tratar grandes volúmenes de texto que obligan a distribuir el trabajo entre varios profesionales -con las correspondientes implicaciones que esto tiene en gestión de recursos, costes y control de la calidad-.

Esta guía de actualización está concebido como una introducción general a los conceptos y las herramientas necesarias para gestionar proyectos de traducción: determinación de recursos humanos e informáticos, cálculo de volumen y coste, formatos, control de calidad, de flujo de trabajo, etc.

Se trata de un curso eminentemente práctico, profesionalizador y orientado principalmente al aprovechamiento de herramientas y recursos libres.

Traducir la gran literatura rusa

McAteer, C. (2021). [e-Book] Translating Great Russian Literature, Taylor & Francis, 2021.

Texto completo

Launched in 1950, Penguin’s Russian Classics quickly progressed to include translations of many great works of Russian literature and the series came to be regarded by readers, both academic and general, as the de facto provider of classic Russian literature in English translation, the legacy of which reputation resonates right up to the present day. Through an analysis of the individuals involved, their agendas, and their socio-cultural context, this book, based on extensive original research, examines how Penguin’s decisions and practices when translating and publishing the series played a significant role in deciding how Russian literature would be produced and marketed in English translation. As such the book represents a major contribution to Translation Studies, to the study of Russian literature, to book history and to the history of publishing.
