Monica de la Torre on self-translation

Monica de la Torre has written an article on her experience of self-translation, that will be published in the next issue (N°81) of the journal Translation Review. While trying to find out more about Monica de la Torre, I came across an interesting post by Susan Bernofsky on her blog Translationista. Susan Bernofsky attended a talk by de la Torre last year, where she shared some interesting insights in her process of self-translation. If you want to find out how google translator can sometimes be accidentally genius, please read the entire post on Translationista. I am looking forward to read Monica de la Torre's article.
