The Albertine Prize: readers’ choice for best contemporary French fiction translated into English

Source: Albertine
Story flagged by: Jared Tabor

The Albertine Prize recognizes American readers’ favorite contemporary Francophone literature while encouraging the discovery of new literary voices, translated and published in the US in the past year. The selection presents a range of stories from many diverse locations and perspectives, reminding us of the importance of looking beyond one’s own borders.

You don’t have to read them all to participate! Read one novel or more from the list below, and vote for as many as you want!

EN
NELLY ALARD

Translated by Adriana Hunter (Other Press). At once sexy and feminist, ‘Couple Mechanics’ tells the story of a woman who decides to fight for her marriage after her husband confesses to an affair with a noted politician. With intelligence, honesty, and humor, the novel examines the forces at work in a marriage, the effects of the inevitable ebb and flow of desire, and the difficulty of being a man today.

EN
ADRIEN BOSC

Translated by Willard Wood (Other Press). This best-selling debut novel from one of France’s most exciting young writers is based on the true story of the 1949 disappearance of Air France’s Constellation, a new plane launched by Howard Hughes, and its famous passengers. Tying together the destinies of boxer – and fiancé of Edith Piaf – Marcel Cerdan, a musical prodigy, and others, the novel gives these thirty-eight men and women a new life by imagining their long-forgotten story.

EN
ANANDA DEVI

Translated by Jeffrey Zuckerman (Deep Vellum). With brutal honesty and poetic urgency, Ananda Devi relates the tale of four young Mauritians trapped in their country’s endless cycle of fear and violence: Eve, whose body is her only source of power; Savita, Eve’s best friend; Saadiq, a gifted would-be poet in love with Eve; and Clélio, a belligerent rebel waiting for his brother to send for him from France.

EN
MAYLIS DE KERANGAL

Translated by Sam Taylor (FSG). ‘The Heart’ takes place over the 24 hours surrounding a fatal car crash and the subsequent heart transplant as life is taken from a young man and given to a dying woman. As stylistically audacious as it is emotionally explosive, the book examines the deepest emotions of everyone involved – grieving parents, doctors and nurses – as they navigate decisions of life and death. The book won the 2014 Grand Prix RTL-Lire.

Translated by Nick Caistor (Seven Stories Press). Lola Lafon’s award-winning novel offers a fictionalized account of iconic gymnast Nadia Comaneci’s life, from her rural Romanian childhood to her unprecedented perfect score in the 1976 Olympics and to her 1989 defection to the U.S. The book re-imagines a childhood in the spotlight of history, a woman adored by young girls in the West and appropriated as a political emblem in Communist Romania.

EN
NATHALIE LEGER

Translated by Natasha Lehrer and Cécile Menon, (Dorothy, a publishing project). Moving between fact and speculation, film criticism and anecdote, Suite for Barbara Loden came out of Nathalie Léger’s obsessive investigation into the mysteries of Wanda, the only film American actress Barbara Loden ever wrote and directed.

EN
MARIE NDIAYE

Translated by Jordan Stump (Knopf). Malinka’s pale beauty helped her rise above her dark-skinned mother’s life of servitude. The book follows her through years of living a lie, leading up to a shockingly violent act that leaves her own daughter yearning to understand who her mother really was.

EN
ABDELLAH TAIA

Translated by Alison L. Strayer (Seven Stories Press). Set in Morocco, Infidels follows the life of Jallal, the son of a prostitute witch doctor, fresh out of boyhood and on the path to Jihad. Filled with a cast of supporting characters whose dreams unravel, the book is structured as a series of monologues, an emotionally relentless mix of confession, shouting match, and secret longing.

EN
JEAN-PHILIPPE TOUSSAINT

Translated by Edward Gauvin (Dalkey Archive). ‘Naked’ is Jean-Philippe Toussaint’s fourth and final novel about one of the most fully realized female characters of contemporary fiction, the haute couturière Marie Madeleine Marguerite de Montalte. With his customary nuanced reflection and nimble wit, Toussaint continues to follow Marie’s relationship with his unnamed narrator, navigating through jealousy and comedy, irony and tenderness.

EN
ANTOINE VOLODINE

Translated by J. T. Mahany (Three Percent). One of the funniest installments in Antoine Volodine’s acclaimed post-apocalyptic series, ‘Bardo or Not Bardo’ consists of seven vignettes set in a universe of failed revolutions, radical shamanism, and off-kilter nomenclature. In each one, a newly dead character bungles his way through the Tibetan afterlife, or Bardo, failing to achieve enlightenment, while the living make a similar mess of things.

Story flagged by: Jared Tabor

On 1 March 2017, at LocWorld Shenzhen, TAUS organized their Game Changers Innovation Contest with the help of host Henri Broekmate from Lionbridge. Ten presenters were asked to spend six minutes on the stage to showcase their innovative idea, perspective or technology. About 100 people gathered in the room to witness this event. The more than 250 attendees of LocWorld all received a link to vote for their favorite.

Henri Broekmate, General Manager for the Asian Region at Lionbridge, opened the contest, introducing the topics that were going to be discussed in the contest and which are on everybody’s mind these days. Quality, data, machine translation and machine learning, interoperability. Topics that TAUS focuses on in the next five years as well.

“It’s clear to me that the pace of innovation is accelerating in our industry,” says Henri Broekmate. “It was very encouraging to learn about advancements in automation across multiple fields, ranging from rapid quoting, translation education and evaluation, real-time mobile-based human translation and language quality evaluation, to name but a few. In addition, domestic China enterprises are getting into the mix and they’re starting to put pressure on more established players in the language technology and services space.”

On 2 March 2017, at the Closing Ceremony of LocWorld, the winner was announced. More than 100 votes came in and it was a tight race. There can, of course, be only one winner and the winner of the Game Changers Innovation Contest – Shenzhen is Claudia Di Lorenzo from Translated/MateCat, presenting MateCAT IQ.

“It’s great winning the Innovation Contest for the second time! MateCat continues bringing innovation to the translation industry. We’re glad that the great audience at LocWorld recognized how simple it is to start selling translations online with the MateCat Instant Quote widget (IQ),” says Claudia Di Lorenzo.

Moravia makes Inc. Magazine’s Europe 5,000 list for second year in a row

Source: PR Newswire
Story flagged by: Jared Tabor

For the second year in a row, language service provider Moravia has earned a place in Inc. Magazine’s list of the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in Europe.

Moravia ranks number 4660 in the 2017 Inc. Europe 5000 list, which reflects the percentage of revenue growth between 2012 and 2015. Moravia grew at a rate of 132 percent over the three-year measurement period, and ended 2015 with €121.1 million in revenues (USD 134.4 million).

All companies that compete for the Inc. 5000 list must submit audited numbers that are verified by a CPA or other qualified third-party authority.

According to Tomas Kratochvil, Moravia Chief Executive Officer, the honor is particularly meaningful this year because it confirms Moravia’s ongoing commitment to fast growth and scalability.

“It’s already an honor to be recognized as one of Europe’s 5000 fastest-growing private companies in a single year,” Kratochvil said. “Of the total, only a small percentage—around fifteen percent—also make Inc’s Europe list two years in a row, and Moravia is one of them.

“Fast growth is much harder to maintain over a longer time period, and making the Inc. list again is a great achievement for our entire team,” he added.

Huawei selects SDL as partner for its global digital marketing

Source: Market Watch
Story flagged by: Jared Tabor

SDL has announced that Huawei, a leading ICT (information and communications technology) solutions provider, has chosen SDL Marketing Solutions to power its global digital marketing strategy.

Huawei’s corporate division, Enterprise BG, offers ICT products and solutions to corporate and industry customers, including government and public sectors, finance, energy, transportation and manufacturing. As a global brand in pursuit of locally relevant digital content and messaging, it needed to create digital marketing experiences that combine global management and control with regionally nuanced understanding.

“SDL leveraged its superior network of local resources to provide us with content management and localization services to operate our website and optimize content for 14 countries,” says Qian Jinsong, senior manager, Huawei EBG Sales and Marketing. “They’ve become an integral part of Huawei’s global marketing strategy. With SDL, we have significantly increased responsiveness to the needs of frontline sales and marketing managers. We’ve also seen this solution foster an increase in traffic and conversion rates in all markets.”

Since 2015 SDL has deployed senior multilingual marketing specialists to 14 countries that Huawei Enterprise BG operates in, helping them in three core areas:

1) Synchronized global publication of site content: Review all site content for local relevance, submit and track a list of issues, and supervise the content update process to complete the online publication of multilingual content on time and to a high standard of quality.
2) Unified management and control of traffic and conversion rates: Optimize search engine keywords for local markets, implement traffic monitoring and analyze the resulting data to increase traffic and conversion rates.
3) Local optimization of marketing content: Rewrite marketing case studies, and produce mini-sites, electronic direct mail (EDM) and multimedia content to ensure marketing content respects local culture, practices, traditional concepts and any other considerations.

In less than one year, the number of visits, retention time and conversion rates for the Huawei Enterprise BG global site increased by more than 10 percent, and in some countries increased by as much as 20 percent.

“Huawei is a great example of a Chinese-headquartered company that’s growing rapidly on the global stage,” said Adolfo Hernandez, CEO, SDL. “With that success comes the complex challenge of managing and delivering relevant marketing content to each individual market. Understanding the nuances and cultural differences in each country is not easy, but our team has worked relentlessly to help Huawei accomplish just that.”

“Les Jeux de la traduction 2017″ competition runs from March 10 to 12 at Concordia University

Source: Concordia University
Story flagged by: Jared Tabor

From March 10 to 12, Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, will host the best and brightest Canadian translation students for the 2017 Jeux de la traduction.

Hundreds of undergraduates from 12 teams representing universities across the country will put their language-swapping prowess to the test. The gruelling weekend will challenge their speed, rigor and imagination.

Participants will deal with materials that only human translators can adequately interpret. For example, teams will have to translate excerpts from songs and audiovisual material that uses “plays on words” and colloquial expressions. They will also be asked to translate materials that have constraints — such as 140-character tweets.

All events will be timed and judged on additional criteria such as creativity, spelling and grammar.

“Quick turnaround of material is a constant reality in the world of translation, so speed is important,” explains Christine York, lecturer in translation with the Département d’études françaises.

“But a translator has the responsibility to the authors and characters they are interpreting to do justice to their work, so this is also heavily weighed.”

Translations are judged anonymously by a committee made up of professors from each university represented at the games. The 12 competing schools are hosts to Canada’s only undergraduate-level translation programs.

Open road interview series: Eszter Lelik. Interpreter, translator, winner of a new car

By: Jared Tabor

Eszter Lelik

Eszter Lelik is the subject of this latest installment in the Open road interview series. Eszter is an English to Hungarian interpreter and translator from Hungary, and was also the grand prize winner of a new Nissan Juke. Her win was announced on 10 January, 2017 in a live broadcast from ProZ.com headquarters in Syracuse. Congratulations, Eszter! On to the interview:


Q. First, the most important question: Where’s the first place you will go in your new car?

Well, I wish I could go on a longer trip with the new car but this is a very busy season for me as interpreter and translator so I can think in terms of a short ride only. So I decided to go to Lake Balaton and visit some friends there.

Q. Now, from your website I see that you have over twenty years of experience as a translator and interpreter. What kind of changes have you noticed in your work and in the industry during the course of your career?

In the course of the past 23 years as it is quite understandable many things have changed. When I started my career, a few years after the political transition here in Hungary, very few people could speak and did speak foreign languages. There was a high demand for interpreters and also for translators in my case, as I worked at that time at one of the Big 6 companies mainly due to the privatization processes where all the documents had to be translated into English. Now, more than 20 years later a new generation grew up, these young people, or rather their parents, realized the importance of foreign language skills so the majority of them speak English, but quite often a second foreign language as well. The multinational companies use English as their corporate language (even if it is e.g., a German company), thus the need for translation has greatly decreased. Nevertheless, considering my specific areas of expertise and the fact that I am doing mainly simultaneous interpreting, plus working not only in English but also in German, I am optimistic about my personal perspectives.

Q. You’ve interpreted for some impressive brands and organizations. What do you find most rewarding about your work as an interpreter?

To become an interpreter has always been my dream. Now, more than two decades after the start of my career I am still certain that I have the best job in the world, at least the right one for me. I like independence, intellectual activity, constant learning, and travelling, always meeting new and interesting people. I have worked for/with famous politicians, celebrities, artists and I sometimes I am amused by realizing that most of them have already disappeared from the public life, from the stage, and I am still here.

Q. Are you optimistic about the future of the language industry?

In my previous answer I have mentioned already what I think of my own future, the future of my career. To be quite honest I am not optimistic at all concerning the future of the language industry in general. With all the translation memories, interpreting gadgets and the obsession with saving money on everything to the detriment of the quality, I think in about 10 years’ time lots of translators and interpreters will be left without any assignment, or paid much less than today.

Q. The theme of this campaign was ‘The Open Road’. What is next for you in your career?

Open Road for me means new challenges, opportunities and many new things to explore.  I think in our profession constant learning has to be the first priority. Thus, for me, deepening my knowledge in some specific areas, like medical and legal areas, is very important. Learning the use of CAT tools would be also necessary and also modernizing  my website is there on my agenda.

Thanks Eszter for your time, and congratulations once again.

In a recent blog post Executive VP of Translation Productivity for SDL Language Solutions, announced the release  of Trados Studio 2017. Below are some highlights of the announcement:

“SDL Trados Studio 2017 is here! I am extremely pleased to be writing this blog announcing the launch of the latest version of the industry’s most popular translation software.

In the last few weeks I’ve had the opportunity to show the beta version of SDL Trados Studio 2017 to many people at events around the world, and the feedback has been incredibly positive.

Like our customers, the people attending these events were very diverse. From the ATA which is predominantly a freelance translator conference to our very own LSP Partner event which is unsurprisingly attended by… Language Service Providers and finally Tekom, which I see as pretty much an event for large corporations. Attending these events was a great reminder of how many different people rely on our software and how different their requirements are.

The innovation we are bringing with Studio 2017 is designed to make the difference. It will make the difference for all these people, no matter what role they play within the industry, for increasing translation productivity.” Read the full post here
