Literary Translation

Literary translation is a highly complex, nuanced process that requires far more than a literal rendition of the text. Literary translations must also convey the author’s original message to a foreign audience while being localized to evoke the same mood and flair of the original narrative.

The DarLukman team has embraced the highly-nuanced and involved process of literary translation, and is skilled at striking the delicate balance between universal meanings and local translations. In addition to their exhaustive knowledge of the source languages and cultures, our literary translators are also creative writers and literature experts in their own right, bringing the crucial attention to detail to the translation process.
Our literary translation team has experience translating a wide range of literature, including classical and contemporary works.

Our literary translation services include:
  • Novels
  • Short Stories
  • Plays
  • Poetry
  • Other Literary Forms
  • Subtitling and Dubbing for Film and Theatre
