A dear friend and fellow translator brought our attention to an article on Variety. There’s a French movie in the making: Les traducteurs. In English, that’s The Translators.

Of course, it’s in no way connected to or affiliated with us. But we love that a great story about translators will be brought to cinemas. Hopefully not just in France!


We did some research and found that there’s not really a lot of information out there yet. Here are some information and a list of links that we’ll update as time goes by and more information becomes available.

Variety writes: The film follows the journey of nine translators who have been picked by a ruthless publisher and locked in a luxury bunker to translate the highly anticipated book of a famous author in record time. Although the translators are confined to prevent any kind of leak because of the high financial stakes, a crisis erupts when someone posts the first 10 pages of the novel online and blackmails the publisher to pay 5 million euros. A hunt for the culprit inside the bunker unfolds.

Can’t wait for the movie to air in 2018!
