A Tip Of The Hat

No week spent focusing on the work of translators would be complete without bringing up the work that Michael Orthofer does on his blog, The Literary Saloon, and website, The Complete Review. The site compiles online reviews of books into one convenient place, while also taking care to offer color commentary when appropriate. 

Special attention is given, especially on the blog, to works of literature in translation. (I should say here that this is my interpretation of the focus--I suspect Mr Orthorfer might say that he's just giving literature in translation it's due, and fair enough.)

If you're new to the site, as amazingly loads of people are, and are a translation geek, be sure to check out their reviews of books that have not yet been translated into English. (Don't worry: the reviews are in English.)
