U.S. translator Paul Sprachman, who renders Persian Holy Defense books into English, visited Iran Book News Agency (IBNA) on Sunday, May 16.
Sprachman has previously translated Ahmad Dehqan’s “Bearing 270 Degrees,” and Habib Ahmadzadeh’s “Chess with the Resurrection Machine”, two Persian novels in the Holy Defense genre.
I owe the agency's work a lot since I receive the latest Iranian book-related news via IBNA, he said.
He went on to say that he is interested in social Iranian books and talking about Book of the Week he added that every week I receive the journal through the consulate in the United States. In fact the journal's reports and news were very useful for me regarding translation.
He is currently translating "Da". Translating some 100 pages, he visited the book's narrator, Zahra Husseini last Thursday in order to solve some ambiguities.
Sprachman can read and write Persian, Arabic, German, Hindu-Urdu, French, and Latin. He is also somewhat familiar with Chinese, Russian, and Hebrew.
