Launched in 2004 by the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, the Translators’ Centre has become a key meeting point for translators and publishers. It offers a wide range of opportunities to:

  • share information and experiences and develop contacts;
  • take part in the programme of meetings, seminars, workshops;
  • obtain information on and register with the World Directory of  Children’s Book Translators, the first world database of children’s  book translators available on-line free of charge throughout the year;
  • obtain information and advice on the main topics of professional relevance, professional associations’ activities, translators’ residences and grant organisations, funding to translations for publishers.

Thanks to the collaboration with Bologna University SSLMIT whose students will practice simultaneous translation during the Centre’s meetings, and thanks to the Bologna Scuola Superiore per Mediatori Linguistici ‘Carlo Bo’, special attention will be paid to job training.

The Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2012 will take place from 19-22  March. The programme of the Translators’ Centre can be found here (http://www NULL.bolognachildrensbookfair NULL.com/traduttori/).

Associations of literary translators are cordially invited to send in information on their organisations and on their initiatives supporting literary translation. Material can be sent to:
