Translators' Corner

Serving its role in disseminating literature and thought from Spain and other Spanish-speaking countries within the USA, the Observatorio welcomes versions in English produced by experienced or emerging translators, of short works originally written in Spanish, from various genres, periods and geographical origins, to be published on-line in this Translators’ corner. The translations are accompanied by a brief introduction providing context on the original text and author. The Publishing Guidelines can be consulted here.
