I just found this podcast from the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival 2008 featuring a panel discussion that might be of interest to all you literary translators out there. Here is a short description of the pod and a link to the programme:


AK 2007 Prog 3: The Art of Translation (duration: 40′52″)
The international publishing scene depends on translation, as it opens books to new markets and audiences. Three writers who have an intimate knowledge of translation consider the complexities and challenges of the process, which at its best involves a high level of collaboration between translator and author. The panel features the award-winning Andreï Makine, born in the USSR, but now based in France, Linda Olsson from Sweden and France’s Pierre Furlan, who has translated both Elizabeth Knox and Alan Duff into French. Local translator Jean Anderson is in the chair.
