What is Literary Translation?

Literature is the highest form of written communication. We use it to express deep thoughts, philosophical ideas, explore impossible scenarios and convey messages to readers. Sometimes, it can also be as simple as telling a small story. Whatever the genre, literature always requires a high command of language. Literary Translation is simply the translation of those writings.

Literary Translation is a small field of the translation industry. It’s not a simple job, as the translator must have excellent writing skills in BOTH languages. In addition to that, they also need to have a rich vocabulary of the genre they choose to translate. Each genre has a different “feel” to it, and the translator’s job is to select the words that best convey the spirit of that genre. For example, when translating “The Godfather”, it’s important to select words that are used by mafias in the target language to best capture the “feel” of the story. Otherwise, the translated version won’t be able to retain any value from the original work. The success of a book in foreign markets depends so much on the translator.

The story I told was beautifully translated. The reviews of my book on Amazon are mostly positive in both languages, so I know that pTranslate did an exceptional job with their service. The readers really feel the message I wanted to convey to them.

I had lived a rough life, and I told that story in my book. The English version was successful, so I wanted to translate it into French to bring it to a wider audience. Thanks to pTranslate, my French version was another success. I can't wait to work with them next time.
Taylor H.
English to French
I had lived through the biggest wars humanity has ever seen. I wanted to tell the stories to the younger generations to let them know of its monstrosity. The writers here did well with their service. The prose feels "real", and I believe the readers will resonate with it.
