What AI tools make you think about translation, is probably not enough when the text in question is a literary piece. Think of literary translation as the holy grail of the craft of translation where creativity meets loyalty–languages bend and push into each other’s territory in search of essence and excellence. To translate one literary text into another, AI doesn’t suffice. It takes people with multilingual flair, sharp creative-perceptive minds to scale the depths and layers of the original  to produce the right kind of translation. For each text and language, strategies are drawn anew. It’s daunting. We love it! 

Thanks to our brilliant cohort of translators, editors, mentors and readers, we have so far translated and published literary gems from Bengali, Hindi, English, Tamil, Malayalam, Assamese, French, Italian and Spanish and are working on many more.
