2019年,我们失去了这些翻译家

如果说作家是人类灵魂的工程师,那么翻译家则是不同语言、不同文化、不同民族、不同国家间的工程师,他们创造语言沟通的桥梁,使文化、艺术、信息、技术得以流动和共享。

前几天Lit Hub做了一期“Notable Literary Deaths in 2019”,记录这一年里我们失去的作家、编辑、图书商人。在圣诞节前,他们这样写道:As if the year wasn’t bad enough, in 2019 we were obliged to say goodbye to far too many members of the worldwide literary community—from the universally beloved to the highly controversial, from the mega-famous to those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes. So before we break for the holiday, consider this a final farewell to some of the writers, editors, and booksellers we lost this year—though it is certain that for most, this tribute will not be their last.

而在这同样不好不坏的一年里,在翻译的行业里,我们同样失去了太多的大师、前辈。就像Lithub的一位读者评论那样:The world ends every second, every hour, every day, for someone.

谨以此篇文章纪念这些离开的大师们。May their souls rest in peace.
