Great article! It is always challenging to translate someone else's work while keeping what they originally mean and also because the targeted audience's culture might be different. For example, imagine doing a Turkish translation of an English book, the translator would have to think of all the cultural differences and adapt to them even if it means losing some of the original meaning. It is tough to take these kind of decisions sometimes.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
