Project

As a translator from Catalan into Spanish, and as the author of some reports of the translations participating in the prize for the translation of Catalan works into other languages, I will participate in the seminar on the translation of Catalan into the different variants of Spanish, to study the feasibility of reflecting the different variants of Spanish in the translation and to analyze whether it is appropriate to use the non-peninsular varieties when reflecting the different variants of Catalan.
