Honorable translation of Astrid Lindgren

Books by Astrid Lindgren still find new readers in new translations. Just recently Astrid Lindgren’s Sunnanäng was translated into Latvian by Mudite Treimane. The book, Saulesplava as it is called in Latvian, has been selected to the IBBY Honor List for the high quality of its translation.

Mudite Treimane has worked at the National Library in Riga for many years. At the same time, she has been busy translating. Over the years, she has translated more than 50 books from Swedish to Latvian, as well as several books from Norwegian and Danish. On top of that she has written a biography of Astrid Lindgren on her own!
