The thrust of this issue of BIGSASWorks! is to reflect on some of the stories of translations that come from Africa and point up what they say about existing theories of translation. Contributions include reflections on the cultural and linguistic questions arising from the translations of Senegalese (Wolof) literature in French (back-) translated into Wolof, as well as those translated into German. Other contributions include studies of implicitation in the translation of Hemingway’s “Hills like white elephant” into Lubukusu, a Kenyan language, and a sociological study of religious translations between English and Igbo, spoken in Nigeria. These essays not only explore translations into African and European languages of African literature in European languages, they also focus on less studied languages like Lubukusu, thereby fronting what contributions these stories make to the narratives at the center. What is more, the bi-lingual (English and German) nature of the essays and the different African countries covered further make them appealing to a wider audience.
