KED Talk - Translation work with Michael Ishimatsu-Prime and Alex Bennett
Another entry in the Kendo Enlightened Discourse (KED) Talk series! This is a podcast-style series where we discuss vaguely kendo-related topics or whatever else comes to mind! In this one, we talk about the difficulties and vagaries of translating, especially as it relates to martial arts related Japanese--how it's underappreciated as a skill, how the translator can overthink something the original author didn't even put too much thought into, and how sometimes old Samurai geezers come and yell at Alex in his dreams.  --- SUPPORT OUR WORK ---You can help us produce more episodes via donations on:- Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/kendoworldYou can also support us by sharing our videos with your friends and spreading the word about our work.   --- CREDITS ---2023-Kendo_World  --- ABOUT US ---Kendo World is devoted to Japanese budo (martial arts), and the dissemination of its vast practical, philosophical and historical aspects to the non-Japanese speaking community. Although our primary focus is kendo, we also cover iaido, naginata, jodo, jukendo and tankendo, as well as other koryu (classical martial arts).
