OCCT Discussion Group: Translation and the Zsolnay Publishing House, 1924-1938

In this talk Tatsiana Haiden will approach analysing the publisher´s translation policies from the translator-centred perspective, and will show the situations in which translators acted as initiators of the publishing process, as mediators between the author and the publisher, or as publisher´s agents abroad. Haiden will look at how translators influenced translation policies of the publisher in a long term perspective and how their social and symbolic capital helped surviving lives. Finally, Haiden will comment on the connection of the socio-political events, the choice of source languages in the respective years, and the translator´s role in it.
