My First Translation Project! (Fiction)
Finally... it's been, what, a year? Two? Karnaval Karnivora is finally out in the market! This is the first fiction book that I translated. This book was moderately difficult for me. And I'm proud to say, by translating this book (and the next ASUE), I become a better writer/translator/editor. And I begin to appreciate the fun and beauty of translating fiction, esp. since I love the books. The books are humorous, in a way! I always smile and laugh when Esme Squalor appears in the picture. She is such a comic relief!
