‘Translating Music’is an AHRC-funded international network project led by Lucile Desblache (project coordinator), Helen Julia Minors(Kingston University) and Elena Di Giovanni (University of Macerata,Italy) which aims to contribute to new developments in the translation of musical texts.
Exploring the interpersonal, intercultural, intralinguistic and interlinguistic bridges on which music and translation intersect, it examines how words linked to music are currently translated and what is needed to improve the provision of such translation, within, but also beyond lyrics.
