‘Translators are the synapses of our culture.  Their work connects us to other, different ways of living and thinking and imagining, and the connections they make enrich us’
(Aidan Chambers, ‘An Indispensable Heritage’, Marsh Award for Children’s Literature in Translation School Librarian, Spring 2005)
