Literary translation is a challenging task because it bridges cultures, languages, and human world-views across national and cultural borders. Only a qualified and experienced translator can produce a truly literary translation.

“In the act of literary translation, the soul of another culture becomes transparent, and the translator recreates the refined sensibilities of foreign countries and their people through the linguistic, musical, rhythmic, and visual possibilities of the new language.”

Professor Rainer Schulte, Co-Founder of ALTA
