I’ve worked my way through my first rough pass on my next translation project, Karla Schmidt’s “Erloesungsdeadline,” a short story inspired by three David Bowie songs. Now the hard work (and also, some days, the fun part) starts–making the German-English mess that it is now into smooth, clear English that does right by the original story. I think the English title may end up being “Absolution Deadline,” but that’s still up on the air!
