Fun BBC programme - Translating as a craft

BBC radio's Front Row programme did a special on translating fiction this week. It should be possible to listen anywhere in the world, and it says it's available indefinitely:

My first career choice on leaving school was to be a translator but I chose to study something else at the last minute. I've been enjoying translating here and enjoying choosing when English readability needs to supercede a literal translation. I though this discussion was a fun insight into doing it professionally.
