Translation of literary books has more specificity and is more demanding than a simple text. Apart from rendering the exact meaning, translation also needs to be carried out in a way that the expression, the style and the general content of the text are all reflected.
Many special conditions required by literary book translations reflect a whole different philosophy in translation. Literary book translations need to remain loyal to the source text while making sure that the work becomes visible without causing any damage to it. Special attention paid to maintaining the author’s style, selecting the right words, achieving consistency among words, the syntax and many other elements altogether lay the foundation of the best possible passing of a literary work into a foreign language.
Our aim to render the literary translation accurate, intriguing, flawless in terms of technique and appealing manifests itself in the books we have translated while providing us with the chance to be engaged in a continuous communication with the authors who display their confidence in us by entrusting us with the task of translating their works.
