Self-Translation in Two Movements

An essay on self-translation by Geneviève Robichaud, where she also talks about the experience of translating herself:
"If the act of self-translation is a creative one, then perhaps it is more apt to speak of two versions, each one furthering the other. This was true of the writing process itself where the Chiac version sent me to the English version to perform certain changes; this bouncing back and forth, a form of collaboration not present in other kinds of translations, shows that the language of original and target text are less than apt terms."
