From 23 to 28 August 2015 the Robert Bosch Foundation and Arbeitskreis für Jugendliteratur e.V. (Working Group for Youth Literature e.V) will host the sixth annual workshop on the translation of German literature for children and young people entitled ‘Kein kinderspiel!’
The five-day workshop offers 15 translators the opportunity to tackle specific problems of the genre and discuss current trends. Participants will have the chance to meet authors, critics and publishing representatives, and learn about opportunities for promotion and for improving existing networks. Above all, the workshop aims to be a centre for encounters, inspiration and exchange of ideas.
Though translators into all languages are welcome, the focus will be on translators into ‘small’ languages as well as translators from Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, North Africa and Turkey.
Participants can avail of a travel allowance. Accommodation and meals for the duration of the workshop will be free of charge.
