Translation Idol IV - All the Entries
All the entries for this year's round of the now legendary talent contest Translation Idol are now online at no man's land. The event went very well, with a good few people taking the chance to get more creative with Verena Rossbacher's very tricky text than we translators are usually allowed to be. For me, that's one of the great things about Translation Idol - it's an opportunity for people to get their teeth into translation without an editor or a reader saying, "But that's not what it says here!" or, "But we don't say that in English!" Also, it's a reminder that translation can actually be a real joy. I hope that comes across in the entries.
