Translation students visit with Serbian translator


Randall Major, left, a linguist who specializes in Serbian translation, talks with students in the Dalkey Archive Press Applied Literary Translation program Friday. The press is housed at the University of Houston-Victoria. Pictured are students Caitlin O’Neil, second to left, Kim Gormley, Dalkey publisher John O’Brien and Josefina Massot. The Applied Literary Translation program provides emerging translators with the opportunity to work closely with editorial staff to produce book-length translations published by the press. Students who complete the program also earn a certificate from UHV in applied literary translation. Dalkey published Major’s translation of “Fata Morgana” in November. The book originally was written in Serbian by Svetislav Basara.
