Three Percent #91: Translators, Rates, Money, and Unions

Today’s podcast is a special one, featuring PEN Translation Committee co-chair (and talented Czech translator) Alex Zucker to talk about what translators do and should get paid, and to break down where all the money goes in publishing a work of international literature.

In comparison to some other Three Percent podcasts, this one is wall-to-wall information, and is sure to spark a number of debates, discussions, and reactions. Enjoy!

Also, since it’s mentioned on the podcast, here’s PEN’s model contract for translators and their FAQ.

This week’s music is The Wind that Cried the World by The Phantom Band.
