Play • 21 min

In this week's episode, Marguerite is joined by French translator Laly  Wehbe.

Laly translated the Silly Sammy Picture Book written by Maria Breen-Fahey, and illustrated by Béibhínn McCarthy.

She explains the difficulties faced when translating something as small as a picture book into your own language as well as her journey living in Ireland and the importance of understanding colloquial terms.  There is a great deal of skill in translating atmosphere, emotion, and maintaining the pace of a text from one language to another.
