Counterpoint no. 10 online now!
19 Dec, 2023

In this 10th issue of Counterpoint, we take up a topic which is both frightening and fantastic for those of us in the field of literary translation. AI, artificial intelligence, has been at the forefront of countless debates, news reels, articles and talks over recent months, and the questions on what this new technology means for our work and our rights, not to mention the quality of translated literature, are many. So, we hear from president Francesca Novajra and treasurer Miquel Cabal Guarro about what CEATL has been doing on AI; legal advisor Gregor Strojin updates us on the copyright issues; researchers Waltraud Kolb and Damien Hansen tells us about the latest developments in the field; and writers David Diop, Brandon Mull and Lavinia Braniște share their thoughts on being translated – or not – by machines.

Turning our gaze to the north, we hear from CEATL’s two Icelandic associations’ representatives, Guðrún Catherine Emilsdóttir and Þórunn Hafstað, who tell us of their work. Next year CEATL’s annual meeting will take place in Reykjavik, and there the task of dealing with AI no doubt will go on.

We hope you enjoy this latest issue of Counterpoint just as much as we have enjoyed putting it together. As always, we welcome your thoughts and comments.
