I just had another argument with my director in a meeting with our project leads. Like always, the meeting started smoothly with pleasantries and apprehensive glances from the staff. On with the usual updates...then like the cue of the maestro in an orchestra...ding! I knew exactly the second it happened. He got caught in the details, started furrowing his brows and looked at the project proposal like it was the first time he saw it. The mindless confusion, questioning of schedules and…Continue

"I know myself and I know the depth of my selfishness. I cannot be at ease (and to be at ease is my chief wish) if someone else is in pain. Sometimes this is mistaken by the innocent for unselfishness, when all I am is sacrificing a small good (my immediate convenience) for the sake of a greater good - a peace of mind - when I need only think of myself."
Adapted from The Quiet American by Graham Greene.
This seems applicable to me, but I have become aware recently…Continue

伦敦出版商 Harvill Secker 一月 17 日推出了东北作家迟子建的第一本译成英文的小说，《Last Quarter of the Moon》。为了《中华读书报》，慷慨先生找到我，进行了有关我翻译这本小说的初衷的采访：
徐穆实 [Bruce Humes]：首先要明白一个事实：书名一般由出版方来定，译者甚至原作家的想法只是建议罢了。要知道，外文版权是外国出版社拥有的，当然是他们说了算。
我的建议本来是直译：The Right Bank of the Argun。这书名不仅忠实原作，也方便引起西方读者的好奇心。因为用“右岸”表达河流的方位有点莫名其妙，西方读者习惯用东南西北来表达。就算西方读者 不知道这条河是几百年以来中俄边境的界线，单凭这种奇特的表达方式，也会引起他们的好奇心。
但英格兰的出版人被早些出版的《额尔古纳河右岸》意大利译文的书名 Ultimo quarto di luna 所吸引，就把它译成英文的The…
