Translating “The Three Body Problem”

Tor.com has a recent article on “Translating the Alien:  Cixin Liu’s The Three Body Problem,” which might be of interest for you to read before we meet next Wed., Aug. 3.  The author, Rachel Cordasco, also runs a website dedicated to speculative fiction in translation (http://www.sfintranslation.com/), which you might be interested in exploring.  The article touches on a lot of issues concerning how well we can express concepts across “alien” languages and cultures here on earth, let alone to different species from different star systems.

Let me know what you think!
