Haruki Murakami, one of the world’s greatest living novelists, enjoyed worldwide recognition through literary translations. Having wrote all of his original novels in Japanese, he would not be able to reach out to the global market without such services.

The interesting thing about this case is that Haruki Murakami can actually speak and write English fluently. He was a writing fellow at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, as well as Princeton University. People are of course surprised that he did not himself write the translations.

Personally, he feels that it is impossible for him to write in English despite his proficiency in his language. It is possible that he feels insecure or is skeptical about his ability to convey his thoughts through English. This can be seen from his satisfaction with the English translations of his work.

As can be observed from this example, a professional translation service may be even better than what the original author can do by himself. This is because the translator may have a better sense of which word to use in the target language.

Choosing the most suitable translator for your project is the crucial first step for successful literary translation. To enquire more about Elite Asia’s LITERARY TRANSLATION SERVICES , do call us at +65 6681 6717 or use our web form.
