In this chapter we take a look at translating literature. This is a complex and demanding branch of translation, but one that is growing in importance. Literary translation is a topic that we can give you only a taste of here, but there are workshops and courses for translators who want to learn more. A good place to start for students based in the UK is the British Centre for Literary Translation: https:// www.bclt.org.uk/. In this chapter we will introduce you to some basic principles and techniques, and look at some of the ways in which literary translation differs from translation of informative texts.
