‘Literature knows no frontiers…‘ PEN International Charter 1926

The importance of the art of translation is at the heart of the PEN charter, which champions the unhampered transmission of thought within each nation and between all nations; beyond national and linguistic borders and beyond conventional literary expectations. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to translate for PEN International.



Born in Romania and living in Toronto (Canada), Carla translates from English into French for PEN-International. She has published on literature, art and the humanities in French, English and German, translating oftentimes from and into these languages. She has also taught, in English and French, at the university level for more than a decade.
