Three Percent Bonus: Becky Crook

As part of “Norwegian Month” here at Three Percent, translator Becky Crook (The Black Signs, Monsterhuman, Silence: In the Age of Noise, and many more) came on the podcast to talk about her first cover letter, in which ways she’s become a better translator over the past half-decade, what to watch out for in contracts, the difficulties in translating intentional mistakes, Norwegian dream projects, and much more. Emerging and experienced translators are sure to get something out of this, even if it’s just the desire to rush out and get ahold of the wild, absurd The Black Signs by Lars Mørch Finbourd.
