Hi all,

Anyone living or simply staying in Granada on Translators' Day?

The literary translators' association ACEtt and Grupo Tibonidas, backed by ASETRAD and APTIC, are holding:

29 Sept.: Multilingual reading of Romantic poets (Hölderlin, Keats and Pushkin) at 20:30 in Hotel Hospes Palacio de los Patos (Solarillo de Gracia, 1).

30 Sept.: "Alien versus Translator" - the reading of several automatic translations into other languages of a brief Spanish text at 20:00 in the Palacio de Santa Cruz of the Granada Centre of Modern Languages.

Announcement at: http://tibonidas.wordpress.com/2011/09/23/celebracion-del-dia-del-traductor-2011-en-granada/

Should anyone be going, I'm particularly interested in hearing a recap of the 30 September event

Pretty please?

Cecilia

Should be a hoot. I still have a 20th century version of Systran which translates "piña" as "fragmentation grenade"...

Strained Fragmentation Grenade

Sure you didn't get that from a military application?
