Cyberwit's author Diane Oatley receives 2014 NORLA Translatorís Award
 

OSLO, Norway - Sept. 27, 2014 -- On 25 September, as part of the celebrations in Oslo marking the feast day of St Jerome, the patron saint of translators, NORLA announced the ninth winner of its Translator’s Award. This award was established in 2007 to draw attention to the efforts of translators in disseminating Norwegian literature abroad. The prize is awarded to an emerging talent in translation and is intended to act as an incentive for further contributions to the promotion of Norwegian literature.

The annual prize is awarded alternately to translators of non-fiction literature and translators of fiction. This year’s prize is awarded for non-fiction.

The winner of the 2014 NORLA Translator’s Award is Diane Oatley, who translates into English. Oatley was born and raised in the USA but has been resident in Norway since 1982.

Translating works of non-fiction requires a great deal of precision, factual knowledge and investigative work. The publishers and authors with which Diane Oatley has worked praise her for her intuitive skills and her good ear for language. In her translations, she also demonstrates superb judgment in conveying subject matter appropriately to an international audience when the original text presupposes specifically Norwegian cultural knowledge.

Diane Oatley has extensive experience with many different forms of artistic expression, working with dance and as a writer of fiction and non-fiction herself. The great range of Oatley’s professional talents is well reflected in her translations of non-fiction works. Among the books she has translated are:

• Tone Huse: Everyday Life in the Gentrifying City: On Displacement, Ethnic Privileging and the Right to Stay Put [Tøyengata: Et nyrikt stykke Norge]

• Ole Jacob Madsen: The Therapeutic Turn: How Psychology Altered Western Culture [Den terapeutiske kultur]

• Steinar Bjartveit and Kjetil Eikeset: Power and Dignity: Perspectives on Leadership [Makt og verdighet: Perspektiver på ledelse]

• Kari Dyregrov, Einar Plyhn and Gudrun Dieserud: After the Suicide: Helping the Bereaved to Find a Path from Grief to Recovery [Etter selvmordet – veien videre]

• Atle Dyregrov: Supporting Traumatized Children and Teenagers: A Guide to Providing Understanding and Help [Barn og traumer: En håndbok for foreldre og hjelpere]

• Svein Olav Kolset: An Exceptional Fellow: A Father’s Story [En sjelden kar: En fars beretning]

She has also translated fiction, including The Weather Changed, Summer Came and So On [Og været skiftet og det ble sommer og så videre] by Pedro Carmona-Alvarez.

Diane Oatley is originally from the United States, of Norwegian-American descent and a resident of Norway since 1982, at which time she attended the University of Oslo as part of her junior year abroad. She transferred from the University of Maine to the University of Oslo in 1983, and subsequently went on to complete a Masters Program in Comparative Literature (women writers within the Anglo-American and Scandinavian traditions), also at the University of Oslo. Since the completion of her studies in 1990 she has worked with literature and dance in a number of capacities, as a poet, freelance writer, lecturer, translator, dance critic/essayist, consultant for dance productions and performer/teacher of Oriental Dance. Expressions of the body represent an ongoing focus in her dance practice and writings, the latter in the form of essays, criticism and poetry published in a wide range of newspapers, periodicals and anthologies in Norway, USA and Great Britain.

Cyberwit.net published Diane Oatley SWOON (Paperback) in 2005. Her book is available worldwide via Amazon USA through publisher's site. The book is also available in India at Amazon.in and Infibeam.

About Poets Printery

A Publishing House dedicated to publishing poetry, strange as it may seem, we have been relevant since 2007, when print poetry became our sole aim and objective. Based at East London, Eastern Cape, South Africa, we, like many small publishers, jumped into the fray by publishing our first Anthology.

Since then we have grown. Poets and readers globally have given us their belief. Transcending time and the mind, poetry and art in all their myriad forms and facets have bloomed. We feel proud to have shared our poets and their creativity at the prestigious Wordfest held at Grahamstown annually.

Poets Printery has launched poetry books and journals at East London, Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. We are also intensely involved in Poetry Art and Poetry Films. Poets Printery believes in global activism in contemporary trends, poetry and art as a protest affirming non racial and unbiased creative living.
