Have you ever translated poetry, Ken_Russell?
For Berlin I want to name Helmut Newton and Walter Gropius.
Thanks for asking- though being a translator indeed and also having translated some fiction, artistic, literary texts in the past, never translated poetry so far (except for the occasional lyric/poetic etc. inserts, quotes, references in fictional or non-fictional texts). Would like however to become more skilled in translating poetry, as well as other literary genres.
Indeed, I find it fascinating how diverse and wonderfully cosmopolitan this community is- so many different backgrounds with so many interesting stories to tell.
