On 18th June the House welcomed Lynda Lounas, an Algerian translator who will be part of our community until 29th June. Lynda applied for a grant to translate Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi's Futuhat Al-Makkiyya (The Meccan Revelations to give it its English title) into Spanish.
The Translator's House wishes Lynda all the best with her translation which is a very important piece of work.
On 24th November Roberto Rodes, director, and María Luisa López, head of communications at The Booksmovie, visited the House to record some pieces of poetry read by Taha Ziada, Márta Patak and Enrique Alda. Taha Ziada read poems in Arabic by Mohab Nasr, and by Antonio Machado that he had translated into Arabic, as well as one of his own poems; Márta Patak read some of her translations into Hungarian of poems by Ana Rossetti; and Enrique Alda read his translations into Spanish of poems by KrisztinaToth and Mary O’Malley.

On 26th May the Casa del Traductor was invited by the Tarazona Escuela Oficial de Idiomas (Official School of Languages) to celebrate its 25th anniversary. The event was held in the spectacular cloisters of Tarazona cathedral. A big audience turned out to enjoy the evening's programme, which was somewhat different.
