Building Bridges: Culture and Language in Translation
走进马来文学的广阔天地 —— 《小语种大舞台》座谈会

This dialogue session by Singaporean Malay-Chinese translators Chan Maw Woh and Wing Chong opens doors into the rich and layered world of regional and local Malay literature, illuminating significant Malay writers and their works, as well as updating on the latest developments of Malay literature in the contemporary world. As translation transcends mere linguistic interpretation to elucidating and embodying a culture’s spirit and essence, both speakers will also share about the intricacies, rewards and challenges of serving as a bridge between worlds.

This session will be held in Mandarin and will be moderated by Lee Chuan Low.

This programme is part of Textures – a weekend with words.

Textures celebrates the power and beauty of words. It invites audiences to experience and appreciate how words give us the ability to express ourselves as well as give meaning to our lives and the world. With its profound ability to connect and unite, words breathe life into the vast breadth of human thought and feeling, whether spoken or written.

In this weekend of words, we also celebrate Singapore literature and the people who have contributed to it. From mastering the craft to those building a community of writers and readers, they are all part of weaving and strengthening the fabric of our literary landscape.
