This is a quarterly journal dedicated to direct translations from foreign languages into Marathi, published by Kalasakta, Pune.
It is probably a unique endeavor of this sort. The first issue of Keylane Bhashantar came out in January 1999. The first issue came out with less than 50 subscribers. But the quality of the journal and the sincerity of its editors soon put it in a "must read" list of discerning readers. Since 1999, 14 issues of Keylane Bhashantar have come out.
Literary works, short stories, novelettes, critical essays, one-act plays and poetry from languages like French, German, Russian, Spanish, English, Arabic, Chinese have been rendered into Marathi through this journal. Each issue of Keylane Bhashantar is woven around a particular theme, which makes each issue a collector's item.
Here is a list of themes that Keylane Bhashantar has focused on: Literature of the World Wars, post-war literature, literature of the 60s and 70s, postcolonialism, postmodernism, ecology and environment, to mention a few. Some of the issues handled translation of one particular literary genre such as novel, biography etc.
There are also regular features like reviews of translated books, recently published, corner reserved for literary classics and a special column delivering information on topics related to specific cultural occurrences that characterize foreign literature. This is a kind of window that looks over alien cultures, habits, idiosyncrasies of various linguistic groups and nature and how all this get reflected in literature.
Though basically dedicated to literary translations, Keylane Bhashantar has paid due attention to literary criticism and theories of translation as well. An innovative experiment was carried out by Keylane Bhashantar, in which two translated versions of the same short story were published with a critical commentary by the editors. The readers were asked to judge the 'correctness' of the translations.
There was an overwhelming response from the readers, where various parameters of 'correctness' were discussed.
Future plans of Keylane Bhashantar include translations from Indian regional languages into Marathi, translations from Marathi into foreign languages and launching a web edition of Keylane Bhashantar.
