The second edition of this unique conference – being the only international translation conference dedicated to the Nordic languages and literatures – was organized by B.J. Epstein (East Anglia University) and myself (Ghent University). The purpose of the conference was to bring together academics, students, translators, literary authors, publishers, and others who work with the Nordic languages in order to discuss the particular challenges of translating between various Nordic languages and also between English and the Nordic languages. Nordic here includes Continental and Insular Scandinavian languages as well as Finnish, Greenlandic, and the Sámi dialects.
