PENGUIN TRANSLATORS



INDEX to TRANSLATORS    A-G    H-O    P-Z   



THIS PAGE - Translators H - O

image





Translators are very much a hidden group of people. We think of the book and the author, we may remember the image of the front cover, but the person who has transformed the novel, poem or non-fiction book into the English language and made it a delight to read is often overlooked.

Probably the exception to this was the 'Classics Series' which brought new translations of the major Classics. The first was 'L1', Homer's Odyssey, translated by E.V. Rieu, who was also the first editor of the series. In fact, over the years, this first book - the E. V. Rieu translation, sold more than three million copies. The series involved translating well known classics from over 25 languages.

On these pages we list in alphabetical order about 270 translators, whose books are included in this web-site. This list is updated as new material is added to the site.

Book illustrated above left:
This is a book in the Main Series no. 1846 The Princesse de Clèves by Madame de Lafayette. It was translated from the French by Nancy Mitford.   Nancy Freeman-Mitford CBE (1904-1973) [pictured above] was a novelist, translator, biographer and journalist. She was one of the well known socialite sisters - the Mitford sisters.
