Since 2019, the French Institute in India / Embassy of France in India has organized a one-day training workshop on translation on the eve of the Jaipur Literature Festival.
In 2019, the training was facilitated by Ms. Ros Schwartz (Translator) and coordinated by Ms. Christine Cornet, head of the Book Office. The trainees worked on an abstract of Zabor, a novel written by Mr. Kamel Daoud, invited at the Jaipur Literature Festival. Click here to view the photo gallery.
In 2020, the training was animated by professional translator Ms. Renuka George and Ms. Leila Slimani, Moroccan-French author & personal representative of French President Emmanuel Macron to the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie. Leila Slimani won the Goncourt Prize for Une chanson douce, translated in English, Bengali, and very soon in Hindi. She was invited in 2020 to the Jaipur Literature Festival. Photo gallery.
