SCBWI Japan Translation Days 2020

SCBWI Japan’s sixth biennial Translation Day event took place remotely on Saturday, November 21, 2020, and Saturday, November 28, 2020. Dubbed “Translation Days 2020” due to taking place over two half-days, rather than one full day as is typical, this event brought together translators in several countries.

Susan Jones, based in Kobe, has a write-up at the SCBWI Japan Translation Group blog:

A compilation of brief excerpts from the workshop with Emily Balistrieri, which focused on material by Eiko Kadono, also appears on the Translation Group blog:
