Im doing a translation of a spanish article from el pais into english. Parts are an interview between a journalist and a writer. In my translation, would i paraphrase what the writer responds or can i leave it as a quotation? Thank you

No, you should not paraphrase. Just translate what the person has said, as he said it.
