Translation House Looren in Switzerland cordially invites you to the first workshop for translators from Slovak to German and German to Slovak during 12 – 19 October 2021. Applicants should have at least one proven publication and they should be currently working on a translation (prose, drama, poetry, essay), ideally with a publisher’s contract. During the week-long workshop, translators will have the opportunity to discuss their book project with colleagues translating in both directions and explore approaches to various different texts.
The workshop will be led by Ján Jambor (Prešov and Bratislava) and Mirko Kraetsch (Berlin).
The program is funded by TOLEDO – a programme of the German Translation Fund, the Robert Bosch Foundation, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, the Goethe-Institut Bratislava and the Literárne informačné centrum Bratislava.
