Three thousand years of Chinese translation

From Buddhism to Marx and beyond, translation has been key to the development of China's culture.


Translation transmits civilisation. Without it, Europeans in the Middle Ages would not have discovered Arabic science and Greek thought, and 21st century Western science would not have spread to the rest of the world. "Plus ca change" was one title we considered for this talk: translation into (and from) Chinese has been key to the development of Chinese culture; the same challenges and dilemmas, headaches and rewards have faced translators on the other side of the world for three thousand years. Nicky Harman will give an entertaining and insightful overview ranging from Buddhism to Marx, and beyond. Nicky has been translating from Chinese to English for over ten years, and is Translator-in-Residence at the Free Word Centre, autumn 2011.
