The World in Words

Translating Birth, Love and Death

Translator and author Nataly Kelly talks about interpreting 911 calls and "cupid calls," as well as translating poetry from a hybrid of Spanish and Shuar, a mainly Ecuadorian tribal language. Kelly has co-written a book on the translation industry called "Found in Translation".
