Post Japan Times interviews Harry Potter translator

The Japan Times online has a new interview with Yuko Matsuoka Harris, the woman who has translated all seven Harry Potter novels into Japanese. She talks about getting the job and her career in general.



Quote:
Enthusiasm is what matters. This is what J. K. Rowling said when asked why they gave me the copyright. She's the greatest! Enthusiasm is all I had: I loved the book and wanted every Japanese to read it.
Quote:
Trust your instincts. My friends recommended that I get the rights to the "Harry Potter" books. I read the first in one sitting and was hooked. I knew this was the project I was preparing for my whole life. It didn't bother me that at that point I had never translated a book nor published much. I knew that I could do it.

wow thats amzing, what dedication if she had never done this kind of work before. I reckon she got paid a bit for it though! but buying the copyright must of been expensive too!!
