   What Norwegian Translator Says when He Talks about Translation

Terje Borud

・Time 16:30‐18:00
・Venue Tokyo Tech Ookayama Campus West Building 9 2nd Fl. Digital Hall  MAP
・Lecturer Tokai University School of Letters Department of Nordic Studies, Lecturer Yngve Johan Larsen

Translator. Translation to Norwegian from Japanese:『バトル・ロワイアル』(高見広春著 太田出版 1999) 『走ることについて語るときに僕の語ること』(村上春樹著 文藝春秋 2007).

The most important mission of translator is to keep the culture behind the original works. How could we translate the culture only exists in Japan into Norwegian or other languages? For example, Japanese vocabularies, such as SENPAI, IZAKAYA, SHOCHU are much difficult to translate into Norwegian. The lecturer talks about the problems of transmission of culture by the language.
