David Bellos in Conversation - Is That a Fish in Your Ear?

Tuesday 13th September 2011 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

How do you translate a joke? What really goes on when world leaders speak at the UN? Can machines ever replace human translators, and if not, why? In this irreverent and witty survey of the world of translation, David Bellos argues that translation is at the heart of who we are, what we do, and how we understand each other.

See the fun animation created by Penguin that explains just what Is That a Fish in Your Ear? is all about on YouTube.
