Overview

What does it mean to be a Translator with a capital T, and how many ways are there of being a translator? Do you have to make a living from translating to be a translator? How can the process of translation inform everyday life, and vice versa? Rahul Bery, British Library Translator in residence (himself uncertain as to whether he merits the capital T) gives his perspective on the multiplicity of translation as a career, pastime and practice.

Rahul Bery is a translator from Spanish and Portuguese to English, a trained languages teacher, and a busy parent. He lives in Cardiff. He is currently Translator in Residence at the British Library. His translations of authors such as Daniel Galera, Enrique Vila-Matas, Guadalupe Nettel, Alvaro Enrigue and José J. Veiga have appeared in The White Review, Granta¸Freeman’s and Latin American Literature Today.
