  • CARRYING OVER: A Special Issue of Interim Dedicated to Translation
  • Deadline info Deadline: July 1, 2022
  • Genre Translations
  • Type Magazine

When Buddhism was first introduced to China, the monks who translated the Sanskrit texts made a choice that would affect the history of translation for two millennia. Their carrying over of Daoist terms made the completely “alien” ideas of the “Sutra of Forty-two Chapters understandable to Chinese readers, which sped-up the spread and acceptance of Buddhism in China by creating something new—the Zen school. Two thousand years later, when Ezra Pound was translating poems of Li Bai, he effectively rewrote those poems which became a crucial spark to jumpstart Modernism. Both the monks and Pound made decisions that some argue showed great disrespect to the original texts. The argument for literal and creative translation has raged since. To what does the translator owe her duty—to the presentation of the original, or to the transfer of the original into a local intelligibility, or, to both? Interim is looking for translations that are mindful of this intricate balance, for translations that are not afraid of music, or clever transfers of puns, translations that strive to reenact the original in universal language, as we believe that translation is in itself a fusion of cultures, and as such, always innovative. Submit through Interim’s Submittable. Guest edited by Xiaoqui Qui.
