Are Literary Translators (still) Lone Wolves? A Scandinavian Survey on Collaboration among Fellow Translators

This paper examines how much the traditional image of
the solitary literary translator still holds true. Changes in professional
associations and modes of communication are
influencing how translators communicate and collaborate
with other translators. This paper presents the results of a
questionnaire on collaboration within literary translation in
Scandinavia. Concepts from Community Studies, such as
generalized reciprocity, interpersonal trust and active participation,
are employed to discuss whether literary translators
feel like members of a community, lone wolves, or simply lonely.
