The sequel to The Letter for the King, called The Secrets of the Wild Wood, is out today (September 3rd) and to celebrate I had a chat with the translator of both books, Laura Watkinson.
What should you study to become a literary translator? Do you translate names too? How do puns work in translation? Watch the interview to find out the answers.
Thanks to everyone who sent in a question!
