in conversation: s.j. naudé and ivan vladislavic

The two men, Fanie and Ivan, wrote letters. In this article they use the English language. In the letters they exchanged they write about and ask questions concerning the work of translating pieces of literature. They discover the spaces inbetween the English language and the Afrikaner language and how to translate from one language to the other.
