Join us with Virginia Castro, our English-Spanish translator, presents “What Happens When Readers Are Children?”. For the benefit of Spanish-speaking children, parents, and adult authors who might consider translating their book(s) during each episode in Spanish. In our  previous episode we discussed how translators try to understand the author’s mind in order to produce a faithful translation. But, being in the middle of the communicative event, shouldn’t we pay the same attention to understanding the readers’ mind as well?

They struggle to find the best equivalent to use in the translated version. They struggle to find the best equivalent to use in the translated version.
