A Garden of Winding Paths: Towards the Autobiography of a Translator

曲徑通幽 · 一家之言



We are delighted to report the success of the featured event titled "A Garden of Winding Paths: Towards the Autobiography of a Translator", which was co-organised by the Hong Kong Translation Society (HKTS) and Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) and took place on Thursday, 6 April 2023. The event was attended by over 70 HKTS members, practicing translators, university scholars, and students. It was delivered in English and simultaneously interpreted into Cantonese for the benefit of the participants. We express our gratitude to Professor John Minford for attending and sharing his passion and perspectives towards literary translation. During the talk, Professor Minford led us through his Garden of Winding Path and his forthcoming autobiography. The event was a great success, and we were delighted to see so many on-site participants engage in lively discussions and exchange their thoughts on the topic.
