The ProZ.com newsletter for January featured a short item on translators who are also musicians. You can see the newsletter in the archive, here: http://www.proz.com/newsletter/201401

Several people wrote back to share what they are up to musically in response to the newsletter, and I thought it would be fun to share that with everyone. You can read a bit about each person and listen to their music in the latest Translator T.O. blog post:

Language and music Feb 6, 2014

Neuroscience found evidence that the processing of music and language depend on some of the same brain systems, so a translator who makes music makes sense!

Musical translators are not that common Feb 6, 2014

If the the translation contest - the Kristofferson/Cash song Sunday Morning Comin' Down - is anything to go by, then translators are not lyricists, by-and-large. In all the (several) languages I can understand, it is quite rare to find a translation that would go with the music.
